BESTGRID keeping current


The EU-funded BESTGRID project pools the forces of five TSOs (50Hertz, Elia, National Grid, TenneT and Terna), two environmental groups (BirdLife Europe and Germanwatch), one research institute (IIASA) and the Renewables-Grid-Initiative (RGI). Launched in April 2013, the project works towards modernising and expanding the European electricity grid for the integration of a growing share of renewable energies. Now the partners have published a newsletter to inform about the project’s progress.
