Member of the European Parliament visits TSCNET

08.09.2017

Arturs Krišjānis Kariņš, a Member of the European Parliament (MEP) for Latvia and former Minister for Economics of Latvia, has visited TSCNET Services. Kariņš is a part of the conservative European People’s Party parliamentary group. The American-born entrepreneur and politician is a member of the EP’s Committee on Industry, Research and Energy and was accompanied by his advisor Edijs Ostrovskis, also coming from Latvia.

Alexander Küster, Head of TSCNET’s Operations Team, and Emanuel Kofler, Organisational Development Manager at TSCNET, welcomed the guests at the company’s premises in Munich, Germany, where they talked about the growth of the company and its range of services for transmission system operators (TSOs). They outlined how Regional Security Coordinators (RSCs) such as TSCNET have established a higher standard of security of supply in Europe and significantly improved the cooperation between TSOs over the last years. In this context, they also debated on ElSeC 2017, the first European Conference on Electricity Security Coordination hosted by TSCNET and co-organised by ENTSO-E, the European Network of TSOs for Electricity, on the 17th of October. This visit was a great honour and a valuable opportunity to debate on Europe’s power grid at present and future developments.
