The total market in Belgium has been slowly growing again since 2010, but differently in Flanders than in Wallonia.
In Flanders (65% of the market), a subsidy system (550€/m² or a maximum of 2.750€) stimulated the use of small systems. In Wallonia (30% of the market), the subsidy system is only present for large systems. Wallonia ended the subsidies for small systems in 2012.
In 2012 more than 60.000 m² of solar thermal collectors where installed. Totally till 2012, the market size represents 0,043 m²/hab.
