Event description

Description

May we introduce you to the Posidonia Oceanica – the most widespread seagrass species in the Mediterranean Sea? Scientists have found out that the grass is even better at transforming CO2 into oxygen than the rainforest, therefore supporting the fight against climate change. Moreover, the plant, commonly known as Neptune Grass, creates habitats for many other marine organisms and structures and stabilises the seabed.

Are you wondering why we are so interested in this little all-rounder? Think about it: ENTSO-E estimates that in the coming decade 40% of grid development will be submarine. This means that project developers and authorities will have to put great thought into the preservation of the marine environment since grids can be disturbances to sensitive species and habitats when being laid, operated or dismantled.

We kindly invite you to join us in collecting knowledge, innovative practices and lessons learnt on seagrass protection at our upcoming event

“Developing transmission electricity grids, protecting our seas – Expert workshop on innovative approaches to seagrass protection with a focus on the Posidonia Oceanica”

The workshop is kindly hosted by Red Eléctrica de España.
