The state of Brandenburg in North-Eastern Germany has signed a cooperation agreement with 50Hertz for greater transparency surrounding grid expansion projects. It was signed within the context of an expert forum with participants from citizen action groups, environmental NGOs, industry, authorities and municipal associations. 50Hertz and the state government aim at complementing current planning legislation by way of regular informal dialogue formats. In the next few months, criteria for public participation and cooperation shall be jointly determined.
