Abstract:In recent years the public debate on citizens living nearby high-voltage connections emerged to a point where politicians eventually agreed on developing a substantial proposition. With the affordability of energy supply in mind, a structural solution was desired for urgent situations of citizens living nearby overhead connections. Two policy programs are introduced and start in 2017. The aim of this research is to develop new institutional arrangements that contribute to the implementation of the undergrounding program and buyout regulation. In order to achieve this, theories of Elinor Ostrom and linked scholars are used that relate to the framework for Institutional Analysis and Development. The IAD-framework identifies seven important elements which can be influenced by seven rule types. Expert interviews, desk research and document analysis are methods used in order to gather empirical data as a solid knowledge base for designing new institutional arrangements. The rules-in-use in this policy process are described and improved in order to answer the following research question: Which institutional arrangements contribute to the implementation of the undergrounding program and buyout regulation in situations of citizens living nearby overhead connections in the Netherlands? In section 4.4 in the report shows and explains the new developed institutional arrangements.
