Coreso doubles its watching zone and contributes to an enhanced electrical security in Europe

26 November 2010

The electricity Transmission System operators (TSOs) of Italy (Terna) and North and East of Germany (50hertz Transmission) have today become shareholders in Coreso, alongside their fellow TSOs from France (RTE), Belgium (Elia) and Great Britain (National Grid). This move extends significantly the area monitored by Coreso’s Brussels-based technical coordination centre that now covers 215 million customers, some 43% of the European Union’s population.

In a European electricity market that has acquired a truly transnational dimension and where renewable energy is becoming increasingly more relevant, the coordination services provided by Coreso have dramatically increased since the creation of the company. They take today a new major step in ensuring security of supply and preventing major electrical incidents.
