    Environmental aspects

    If located in the EU, some programme components would fall under Annex II of the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Directive requiring the competent authority to determine the need for a full environmental impact assessment. The vast majority of the programme components relate to medium or low voltage extensions and reinforcements, works in existing substations, underground high voltage lines and refurbishment, that are expected to have a limited environmental impact. Based on preliminary information and considering the technical characteristics of the programme, none of the programme components are expected to require a full EIA. The main impact that can typically be expected from the proposed activities relate to visual impact, vegetation clearance, impact on flying vertebrates, electromagnetic fields, noise nuisance and disturbance during construction. Environmental & social (E&S) aspects will be reviewed during appraisal to ensure alignment with Bank's E&S requirements.


    The Bank will require the promoter to ensure that implementation of the project is done in accordance with the Bank's Guide to Procurement.
