Palma, Spain

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.

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.

During our workshop in Palma we exchanged knowledge, innovative practices and lessons learned on seagrass protection. In addition, we discussed further steps for an exchange of best practices on this topic.
