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?
These and other questions were discussed with our distinguished speakers, including: Maroš Šefčovič, Vice-President of the European Commission; Joseph P. Kennedy II, Founder and President of Citizens Energy Corporation and Dominique Ristori, Director General of DG Energy.
