“Grid expansion slowly gains speed”

Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy

Germany’s grid expansion is only slowly progressing, according to a report by the federal economy ministry. About half of the 22 most crucial high voltage grid projects – determined by the German Power Grid Expansion Act – are approved, but only 650 of the total of about 1,800 kilometres have already been realised. The government expects the last projects to be completed by 2025.
