What will the electricity transmission grid look like in 2030? Three major building blocks of ENTSO-E’s pan-European network development plan released, Brussels, Published: 09/11/2015AEI Updates 2015Posted by Adv. Lorenc Gordani, PhD Mon, November 09, 2015 13:09:58
ENTSO-E’s 10-year network development plan or TYNDP is the most complete pan–European plan for the development of the electricity transmission grid. It answers questions like what, where and when infrastructure needs to be build and how Europe will benefit from it.
As part of the 2016 edition of the TYNDP, and after having received and integrated stakeholder feedback, ENTSO-E is publishing eight final reports:
Six regional investment plans
The TYNDP 2016 scenario development report and the associated market data Each document represents a key element within the TYNDP 2016 package which will be completed by mid-2016 with the TYNDP 2016 main report and an adequacy forecast report.
Why should you read the regional plans?
The regional investment plans put infrastructure projects in a regional perspective. They are the result of common planning studies across member states which is a core added value or the TYNDP. They give details on the regional constraints and needs of the high voltage grid. The infrastructure projects that result from these studies are part of the TYNDP 2016 final list of projects also released today.
Why should you read the scenario development report?
The starting of every planning exercise is the answer to how we envisage the future we want to study. As such the scenario report explains the future that ENTSO-E together with the stakeholders envisages for 2020 and 2030. It tells the story, presents the assumptions and completes the picture with the associated figures. This data will be further used in the next step of the TYNDP which is the project assessment.
Interested to see what infrastructure should be built in the next decades?
The TYNDP 2016 list of transmission and storage projects gives a clear view on what European relevant projects are to be expected by 2030. These are the projects that ENTSO-E will assess in its TYNDP 2016 main report using the European costs/benefits analyses.
