The main objective of the LIFE Elia-RTE was to find alternative vegetation management methods to combine electrical safety and biodiversity. The project has evolved in many other directions : local partnerships, public acceptance, biological monitoring, cost/benefit analysis, trainings for the staff and many more.

In total, more than 500 ha of electrical corridors in woodlands have been transformed into green corridors under HV lines. These actions were led with the involvement of local partners in Belgium and France. The LIFE Elia-RTE project has received 3 awards in 2015 and 2016.
