“I want all parties in our sector to come together with a shared ambition, agreed tasks and priorities. This is how we will shape the energy system of the future.
The energy transition has now really gained momentum and we see a need for extra capacity on the electricity grid in almost all sectors.
This means that both TenneT and the regional grid operator will have to do everything they can in the coming years to expand and, where necessary, upgrade the grids.
At the same time, we have to do this in a smart way and with collaboration between all players. Producers,
network operators and customers must work together on smart solutions, such as storage, conversion, cable
pooling and demand management. And in the meantime, we need to expand the grid significantly to realise the energy transition.
In times of transition, there are many interdependencies between different players, each with their own role and specific priorities.
With so many interconnected parties it is crucial that there is more coordination so that the energy transition is as efficient as possible.
Therefore, more than ever, I want all parties in our sector to come together with a shared ambition, agreed tasks and priorities.
This is how we will shape the energy system of the future.”
