Power Transmission System Operators are working full speed and across borders to keep the light on in Europe and to restart an ever greener economy

The Electricity Transmission System Operators of Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Spain and Switzerland are regularly coordinating their efforts to do the utmost to limit the consequences of the Covid-19 pandemic on people, electricity supply and the economy in Europe.

“We need to jointly ensure the stability of the electrical system, the service continuity and the operation of our network infrastructures, which represent the real backbone of the interconnected electricity system on a continental scale”, the CEOs of the high-voltage system operators are saying jointly. “Energy has always been an essential component of European partnership. While the COVID-19 pandemic is impacting the life of our citizens and the European economy with full force, electricity remains more than ever crucial for daily life, health services and more generally to all critical activities.”
