Grid expansion at 50Hertz

The pace of the grid expansion determines the pace of the energy transition. One of the purposes of the high voltage grid is to transport renewable energy to the centres of consumption and to balance out fluctuations in power generation.

To ensure the security of supply, we are currently planning the construction of several new overhead power lines with an extra high voltage level of 380 kV. Here, you can closely follow the current progress of these projects.
