Connection of new infrastructure

Access to the grid infrastructure is regulated by the Authority for Electricity and Gas (AEEG). The description of typical connection solutions is an essential part of the Grid Code. However, Terna may examine alternative solutions, which must be approved by the AEEG in order to reduce as much as possible the possibility of behaviour that could appear discriminatory with respect to the applicants.

During 2009, work was completed on the construction of grid infrastructure to connect:
  • 12 primary distribution substations;
  • 9 plants generating from conventional energy sources; 
  • 35 plants generating from renewable sources, including 30 from wind.
