The 'Good Practice of the Year' award rewards those who dare to think outside the box when it comes to creating the grid for the energy transition. Each year, we invite everyone who develops new technological solutions, tackles innovative grid designs, takes on the question of how grid projects can be met with more societal support, or creates improved nature protection approaches to share their practices via our award competition.
