Grids meet Renewables - Conference and Best Practice Fair

The Renewables Grid Initiative and WindEurope have the great pleasure to invite you to our joint event “Grids meet Renewables”. The Renewables Grid Initiative and WindEurope have the great pleasure to invite you to our joint event “Grids meet Renewables”. The energy sector is currently undergoing a major transition, one that will have a significant impact on citizens, consumers, industry and the environment. For this transition to meet societal expectations, technological and environmental requirements, a variety of energy industry players must come together and decide how best to navigate the changing energy landscape. Our event “Grids meet Renewables” will facilitate an open dialogue between the renewables and grid sectors.

Presentations online: 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. During our workshop in Palma we exchanged knowledge, innovative practices and lessons learned on seagrass protection

Presentations online: The prospects of undergrounding power lines - Lessons learned from pionieering cable projects

More than three years ago, we met in Switzerland to discuss the technical, environmental, financial and regulatory aspects of highest-voltage underground cables in Europe. Since then, a lot has happened in this field. At our workshop, which was kindly hosted by Amprion, we looked at the status quo of underground cables in Europe. Where are we, which lessons have we learned?

Webinar: Best Practices in grid development - Deep dives into RTE's approaches to compensation and osprey protection

The build up of new grid lines very often sparks public protests. The Renewables Grid Initiative (RGI) has been invested in collecting and promoting various approaches that target a more socially and environmentally friendly grid development via its ‘Good Practice of the Year’ award for many years now.

Event material online: Conference on Public Participation - State of the art approaches to stakeholder engagement in electricity infrastructure projects

Whether you call it Monsterpylons (UK), Monstertrasse (DE) or Monstermaster (NO) – the phenomenon is the same: very often and all over Europe, different stakeholder groups form and vocalise strong opposition to high-voltage power lines

Event material online: 6th European Grid Conference - Sustainability and the Power Grid

At our 6th edition of the European Grid Conference, we looked at three different dimensions of the power grid: society, economy and the environment. How can grid investments have a social dimension? How can economic benefits for communities affected by new grid infrastructure be realised? How can biodiversity and nature profit from new and existing power lines?
