Stroomnet Groningen and Drenthe are approaching delivery




at border
The electricity grid no longer has capacity to handle further feed-in in parts of Groningen and Drenthe. Network operator Enexis is therefore unable to connect new solar panel projects at locations.

Enexis and the national grid operator TenneT acknowledge the connection problems to the Volkskrant : “New initiatives for sustainable generation, in particular solar parks, require so much connection capacity that the regional grid is approaching the limits of maximum load capacity in the short term and in various places”. In particular, lack of planning in the initiatives would be the cause, as a result of which network operators can not timely adapt cables and transformation houses.

The problem would mainly occur in sparsely populated parts of the country, such as Groningen, Drenthe and Overijssel. The power grid has less capacity there, but the soil is relatively cheap and there is plenty of room for sunbathing, for example. However, problems also appear in other regions. In November last year , GroenLinks in South Holland registered the lack of network capacity. Among other things, a solar weather project in Boskoop would be delayed.

Minister Wiebes of Economic Affairs and Climate referred in May last year in response to parliamentary questions to the Electricity Table, where decentral governments and network operators are involved: “In the short term, the authorities involved, network operators and the sector will have to find a practical solution in consultation. increasing the network capacity takes time, because space needs to be found for stations and for new connections with associated spatial permit procedures. “
