“Mapping the Energy Union: new ENTSO-E 10-year network development plan”

European Network of Transmission System Operators for Electricity

To secure the transport of large quantities of renewable power to the main consumption centres in Europe, an extension of the current electricity grid is needed, according to the ten-year network development plan (TYNDP) published by European Network of Transmission System Operators for Electricity (ENTSO-E). This was the case, even as “local solutions, demand response and storage will play a growing role”, says Konstantin Staschus, ENTSO-E Secretary-General. The TYNDP 2016 includes 200 medium and long-term transmission and storage projects for a total of 150 billion euros.
