Ecopower is a Belgian cooperative founded in 1991, financing renewable energy projects in Flanders. Since the liberalisation of the energy market in Flanders (July 2003) Ecopower became a supplier of green electricity produced in Belgium. At the end of 2010 1% of the Flemish households were supplied by Ecopower.[1][2][3] Projects in recent years include the placement of wind turbines in Eeklo, Gistel and Ghent, and the placement of hydroelectric turbines in Rotselaar, Hoegaarden and Overijse.[4]

Ecopower is member of the Belgium group of renewable cooperatives and the European group of renewable cooperatives
