Grid Development

The grid is constantly evolving in order to meet the needs of both society and consumers. Elia plans its investments so that it can efficiently solve future challenges.

Elia proactively plans grid development investments in line with the needs of society, changes in the electricity market, renewable energy targets, and so on.

Elia uses development plans to present its grid development projects to the authorities and market players. Visit our Development plans page for more information.
More specifically, the federal development plan aims to establish the measures needed to ensure our high-voltage grid can meet future needs in terms of security of supply, sustainability and competitiveness. Visit our Federal development plan page for more information.

Elia prefers to connect new generation units to existing substations whenever possible so as to avoid any unnecessary grid expansion works. Visit our Accommodation Capacity page for more information.
