Flanders wants to get 10.3 percent of its energy from renewable sources to meet sustainable energy targets. Tommelein's administration has calculated what should happen to achieve this. The government is focusing on solar energy and wind energy.
Flanders will launch so-called cheap energy loans as an incentive towards members of the public to invest in either solar panels or wind turbine projects. "If every Fleming would install one solar panel, we would meet our solar energy target tomorrow", Tommelein explained. "Our plans are ambitious, but not unrealistic. We have no time to lose, which is why the Flemish government has already approved changes for these energy loans."
