The BESTGRID project tackles challenges related to planning and realising grid development projects by approaching them in innovative ways. TSOs and NGOs work together on four grid pilot projects to improve local and public acceptance. Objectives of the project are to enhance transparency and public participation, to speed up permitting procedures by proactively addressing or even surpassing environmental protection standards, and to encourage the implementation of constructive public engagement in permitting procedures for European energy infrastructure “projects of common interest”.
