Due to reduced power production, Belgium may encounter power shortages this winter. To mitigate a complete power failure, the Belgian Government has announced a rolling blackout plan, in which parts of municipalities and districts are temporarily cut off from power at a known time. These cut offs are grouped in sections, which you can select below. If your municipality is light yellow, you may experience a couple of hours without electricity. To see details per district, just select your municipality on the map.
This visualization won't work during a blackout. :-) On September 12, the rolling blackout plan was adjusted to correct a geographical imbalance (see Dutch or French article). We didn't take this into consideration during the creation of the map.
