Video online: Webinar on how we can find the optimal route for new power transmission lines - exploring Swissgrid and ETH Zürich's 3D Decision Support System

Watch now: RGI and ENTSO-E's best practice webinar on planning tools.

The energy transition brings renewable power to our households, which in turn, requires new power transmission lines. However, where should they go through? Which factors should be taken into account? Where does the data come from?

The 3D Decision Support System (3D DSS), developed by ETH Zürich uses new, exact approaches to determine the optimal path for new overhead lines and underground cables. The stakeholders themselves define the goals they want to achieve and the lands they want to protect so that a consensus solution can be found. Presented by Joshu Jullier (Swissgrid) and Joram Schito (ETH Zürich).
