Workshop "Grid Aesthetics - How to engage stakeholders in landscape planning, design and aesthetics of grid infrastructure"
Beautiful and peculiar landscapes - both natural and architectural - are widespread across Europe. Very often, these are dear to local residents due to strong emotional bonds. Naturally, scepticism arises when some of these areas are to be changed due to the crossing of new power lines.

Design and technology can play a major role when seeking better solutions for the integration of grid infrastructure in the surrounding landscape. However, this requires big engineering efforts and often entails higher costs. Some TSOs, including Terna, have experimented with these new design options: how did they choose and implement the new pylons? How can stakeholders be engaged in such a decision-making process?

The consortia of the two EU-funded projects INSPIRE-Grid and BESTGRID organised this two-day workshop including a field trip.
