The grid concession investigation is now complete!

During the year,  Nätkoncessionsutredningen [the Grid Concession Committee] submitted recommendations to streamline and speed up the expansion of the electricity grid. The Swedish Wind Energy Association takes a very positive view of several of the proposals, which are in line with approaches which the Association has been advocating for many years. Exemption from the permit process for all cables within a wind farm would, for example, remove the uncertainty currently faced by project planners and is also likely to free resources for actual electrical work rather than their being tied up in the complexities of permit applications.
The Chair of the Committee, Elisabet Falemo, explains the potential benefits of the Committee’s recommendations for the wind power sector.
