Our key tasks

We are primarily tasked with providing power transmission services, system services and facilitating the energy market. Our core tasks follow from our appointment as grid operator under the Dutch 'Elektriciteitswet' (E-wet) and the German 'Energiewirtschaftsgesetz' (EnWG).

Our grid

TenneT manages the high-voltage grid in the Netherlands and large parts of Germany. TenneT transmits electricity at 110,000 volts (110 kV) and higher. With over 22,000 kilometres of high-voltage lines, we cross borders and connect countries.

Electricity market

The energy sector is developing rapidly. The process of European market integration began some years ago. Its purpose is to create a single European market that enables market parties to trade gas and electricity across national borders easily and efficiently.

Stade-Landesbergen

In order to ensure the security of supply for Lower Saxony in the future, the transmission capacity of the existing line must be increased by the year 2022.

About the project

TenneT is making the Stade-Landesbergen line fit for the energy transition. The existing Stade-Landesbergen line is a roughly 145 kilometre long supply line between Stade near the Elbe and Landesbergen in the Mittelweser region. Due to the increasing quantity of renewable energy being fed into the grid, the transport capacity of the line is no longer sufficient. In order to ensure the security of supply for Lower Saxony in the future, the transmission capacity of the existing line must be increased by the year 2022. The existing 220 kV line will therefore be replaced by a higher-capacity 380 kV line. The old towers and lines will be completely removed.

The approval for the Stade-Landesbergen line will be issued in two consecutive processes: The Office of Regional Development (ArL) in Lüneburg will define a “route” – i.e. the physical path of the power line – for the Dollern-Landesbergen section within a regional planning procedure. The exact location of the line within the route and thereby the precise tower locations will only be determined in the subsequent planning approval procedure. This procedure will follow the regional planning procedure and will be carried out by the Lower Saxony road construction and transportation authority in Hannover.
