-> Read the draft CBA 4 Guidelines

The Cost-Benefit Analysis (CBA) methodology is used to assess the benefits and costs of electricity transmission and storage projects from a pan-European perspective, in the context of the Ten-Year Network Development Plan (TYNDP). The main objective of the CBA methodology is to provide a common and uniform basis for the assessment of projects with regard to their value for European society. It provides important input for the selection of European Projects of Common Interest.

Following the revised TEN-E Regulation (EU) 2022/869, including the requirements for the content of the methodology for the system-wide CBA, ENTSO-E’s 3rd CBA Guideline* has been updated in a fourth version to comply with the new requirements.

During the workshop, ENTSO-E will present the main changes compared to the previous edition of the Guideline, and stakeholders will be able to ask questions and leave comments. The 4th ENTSO-E Guideline for the Cost Benefit Analysis of Grid Development Projects is also currently open for public consultation until 1 February 2023. To respond to the consultation, please visit the consultation page.
