Developing transmission electricity grids, protecting our seas

May we introduce you to the Posidonia Oceanica – the most widespread seagrass species in the Mediterranean Sea? Scientists have found out that the grass is even better at transforming CO2 into oxygen than the rainforest, therefore supporting the fight against climate change. Moreover, the plant, commonly known as Neptune Grass, creates habitats for many other marine organisms and structures and stabilises the seabed.

Are you wondering why we are so interested in this little all-rounder? Think about it: ENTSO-E estimates that in the coming decade 40% of grid development will be submarine. This means that project developers and authorities will have to put great thought into the preservation of the marine environment since grids can be disturbances to sensitive species and habitats when being laid, operated or dismantled.

We kindly invite you to join us in collecting knowledge, innovative practices and lessons learned on seagrass protection at our upcoming event. 

The workshop starts on the evening of the 25th and will close around noon on the 27th. 

Please contact us if you need support for your travel costs.

Disclaimer: Please note that we will take photos during the workshop that will be published on our Flickr-Account and in RGI publications.
