A Spotlight on E.DSO Priorities

Welcome to E.DSO’s new series, which aims to shed a spotlight on our advocacy priorities. Each month, E.DSO will focus on a specific theme, and with the help of our members we will be releasing a video highlighting how these various topics impact the grids and DSOs in general.

For our second video, we focus on the topic of anticipatory investments. Johan Mörnstam, CEO of E.ON Sverige, gives a brief explanation as to what these entail. As a reminder, DSOs are at the forefront, guiding an investment of over €400 billion by 2030 in Europe’s electricity grids to accommodate renewables, improve reliability, and empower customers. 

For our third video, Robert Tucker, Resilient Network Manager, Network Assets at ESB Networks, emphasizes the topic of grid robustness and resilience. Our daily lives are being impacted by climate change and the increasingly frequent and extreme weather events that come with it. How does our world—specifically our electricity grids—stand up to these forces? 

For our fourth and final video, Rickard Venetjoki, Manager Political Affairs at EON, focuses on the topic of Grid Financing and Anticipatory Investment.

Rickard sheds light on the importance of this topic and the EU’s journey to make energy cleaner, smarter, and more sustainable for everyone. To aid with this, E.DSO proposes the creation of a Decentralised Grid Facility to support and fund decentralised energy projects, ensuring they are not left behind in our move towards energy independence and sustainability.
