The Electricity Grid Action Plan published in August 2018 is pursuing a dual strategy with a view to progressing the expansion of the power grid:

1) Optimisiation and increase the capacity utilisation of existing grids by using new technologies and operating concepts.

2) Acceleration of the grid expansion and development of it by conducting forward-looking auditing of the process.

The package of measures was agreed upon in September 2018 to make rapid progress on the expansion of the power grid. This includes a revision of the Grid Expansion Acceleration Act (NABEG 2.0), agreements on targets for the completion of planning procedures, and forward-looking auditing of the process. The Incentive Regulation Ordice also impacts on grid expansion.
