The Elia Group supports the development of environmentally and people-friendly grids


The Renewables Grid Initiative (RGI) brings together a coalition of environmental organisations and power transmission system operators, who have joined forces to promote renewable energies – a goal that involves, among other things, the development of appropriate grids.

In 2011, they signed a joint declaration to this end, called the European Grid Declaration.

At the 2nd European Grid Conference in Brussels, jointly organised by the RGI and Smart Energy for Europe Platform (SEFEP), they will present their report and a declaration on transparency and public participation in the development of future grids to European Commissioner for Energy Günther H. Oettinger and European Commissioner for the Environment Janez Potočnik.

This initiative has the active support of Elia Group CEO Jacques Vandermeiren and the CEO of our German subsidiary 50Hertz, Boris Schucht.
