Eandis System Operator is a distribution system operator (DSO) in Flanders that carries out operational tasks on behalf of Eandis Assets, distribution grid operator for electricity and natural gas. Eandis operates independently from energy generators and suppliers. It does not itself generate or sell any energy but ensures that the electricity and natural gas reaches the customers in the best possible conditions. In Flanders, customers can freely choose their energy supplier for electricity and natural gas. The energy is distributed through a network of cables and pipes to the homes and enterprises. Operating this network is the main activity of the distribution network operators. They act on a specific territory and as such, customers are not able to choose their DSO. Eandis also engages in the development and roll-out of district heating networks.
