A strong electricity grid can distribute surplus wind and solar energy by 2050. In order to succeed, the grid must be three times stronger than it is in Europe at present. This will provide an opportunity to divide approximately 40 per cent of the surplus production. The rest can be used for local heating and transport. The interaction between local utilisation and the transmission of renewable energy is one of the project’s core themes.
