The role of the German Environmental Aid (DUH) on the ground

Year

2010

Organisation

50Hertz, TenneT, Deutsche Umwelthilfe

Description

In addition to its activities to support the need and general grid expansion discussions, the DUH plays a role in projects “on the ground”. It organises information events, which deal with the grid discussion in general as well as planning procedures for specific corridors.

In addition, both the state Lower-Saxony and municipalities in Schleswig-Holstein invite the DUH to moderate their events in cooperation with the TSOs 50Hertz and TenneT. DUH, 50Hertz and TenneT confirm that the nature of discussions often changes when information is provided by an environmental NGO, which normally is considered more trustworthy than a private company.
