Following the very encouraging results of the LIFE Elia-RTE (2011-2017), the French Transmission System Operator has entrusted Ecofirst with the mission of leading the drafting of a new LIFE+ Biodiversity project entitled Grid4LIFE .
In addition to on-site developments, the project also aims to improve governance in terms of the ecological management of energy transmission infrastructures (analysis of national and supra-national legal tools and proposals for improvement). This will be done in several European countries.
The Grid4LIFE dossier is drafted by Ecofirst in partnership with RGI (Renewables Grid Initiative), an independent body of business federations and NGOs, to be submitted to the European Commission in 2020.
