Each pilot project is a grid development project that is planned and realised by one of the TSOs participating in BESTGRID. The operators in charge of a pilot project that design and test new activities were 50Hertz (Germany), Elia (Belgium), and TenneT (Germany). They received advice from NGOs during project planning as well as throughout the implementation phase. All pilot projects were different from each other, but complementary at the same time. Thus, they enabled BESTGRID to assess best practices pertaining to large electricity infrastructures, environmental conditions, and differing social and regulatory conditions.
