Still impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, 2021 was a year that posed existing and new challenges related to the acceleration of the energy transition and the growing urgency for nature restoration and species protection. Nonetheless, we adapted quickly to the new reality and grew constantly, addressing new topics and entering new strategic collaborations. We translated the first two Need for Grids videos into German, Italian and French, six further Members joined the Offshore Coalition for Energy and Nature (OCEaN), we ran the 8th 'Good Practice of the Year' award, released various publications, joined new coalitions, the Electrification Alliance and REN21, welcomed the first Supporting Member, Europacable, and launched a new Irish IRD project, 'Our Energy Future'. Find out about all these and more in the 2021 edition of our Annual Report. Happy reading!
