Martin Kroes
Martin Kroes Operational Planning Engineer at Elia

Martin has been working for more than five years in the operational world of the National Control Center of Elia. As Operational Planning Engineer, he helps shape the electrical grid of the future by making sure all outages needed for grid extension and maintenance are done in due time while making sure the grid remains (N-1) secure. Martin is leading the implementation of new tools and processes allowing more agile and efficient planning of grid interventions at Elia. He thinks this is essential to cope with the increased complexity and uncertainty coming from the integration of renewable energy sources on a European level, an important enabler for a carbon-free future.
