About Eoly Energy

Achieving 100% renewable energy within one single generation


Eoly Energy is a leading Belgian renewable energy producer with strong ambitions to further expand internationally.
In recent years, we have developed end-to-end capabilities across the energy value chain, from project initiation to operation. We want to become a global energy player in our three core areas (wind energy, large-scale solar energy and green hydrogen production). We are part of a sustainable ecosystem and we consider partnerships a key element for our future development.


Eoly Energy breezing ahead

Eoly Energy’s story begins with Colruyt Group. It did not take long for this group of sustainability-driven Belgian entrepreneurs to generate the group’s first MWh of green energy. In 1999, the blades of its first wind turbine began turning in Halle. In 2012, Colruyt Group founded WE Power to unite all of its renewable energy projects under one umbrella. Three years later, this was renamed Eoly, Colruyt Group’s very own producer and supplier of sustainable energy. Recognising that clean renewable energy should benefit everyone, Eoly Cooperative was soon founded thereafter, granting local residents their own say and input.

To put even more wind up Eoly’s sails (and blades!), it was later rebranded Eoly Energy. Today, it is part of Virya Energy. Virya Energy combines all our efforts in renewable energy, thereby maximising the exchange of knowledge and technology, while offering all the advantages of scale. Eoly Energy

Wind Turbines

Investing in the energy of the future is a breeze

Want to invest in a brighter future and an attractive, low-risk opportunity? As a member-owner, you will co-own part of a wind turbine and have a share in the profits. This is a low-risk investment, as Eoly Cooperative has partnered with Eoly Energy, who build and manage wind turbines. Eoly Energy are the ones financing the actual construction and shouldering any financial risks. Profits and losses are shared equally between all turbines within a single wind farm. As such, your investment in a greener tomorrow for both yourself and future generations is a safe one.


To truly harness the power of green energy, we are investing in hydrogen, a move we made as early as 2012. Hydrogen is a particularly effective energy carrier. When the wind is blowing at full force and generating an energy surplus, we can simply store that energy in hydrogen. The best thing about this is that it produces zero emissions of particulate matter or CO2. In 2016, we built our first production facility in Halle. Currently, we are working to develop a brand-new hydrogen plant in Zeebrugge, under Virya Energy. Our goal is to produce 4,000 tonnes of green hydrogen per year.

Care free investment in the energy of the future?

Do you want to invest in a better future and an interesting, safe investment?

As a cooperative, you become the owner of a piece of the wind turbine and share in the profits. And that without great risks.

Eoly Cooperative is working together with Eoly Energy for the construction and operation of wind turbines. The risk and financing of the development is borne by Eoly Energy. Moreover, the revenues and costs are shared across all wind turbines of a wind farm. This way, you can confidently invest in the future, for yourself and for the next generations.


Always looking for suitable locations

Do you own a plot of open land in an agricultural or industrial area, or an industrial building with a spacious but unused roof? Your property could be the ideal spot for a wind turbine or solar panels, thereby literally helping you build a greener energy landscape for future generations. Get in touch and we will look into your proposal, no strings attached.
