For the first time in TYNDP 2020 ENTSO-E has approximated the impact of TYNDP projects on the European Union’s economy, to highlight the direct socio-economic benefits of electricity infrastructure projects. The results illustrate that the TYNDP portfolio would deliver substantial employment and economic benefits to Europe and Europeans.
On 15 February 2021 ENTSO-E published an updated version of the TYNDP 2020 following the public consultation that took place from 6 November 2020 to 4 January 2021. The TYNDP 2020 package has been submitted to ACER for opinion.
ENTSO-E’s Ten-Year Network Development Plan (TYNDP) 2020 is the newest release of ENTSO-E’s bi-yearly pan-European plan for electricity infrastructure development, assessing how 154 transmission and 26 storage projects can contribute to Europe’s energy transition and create growth and jobs. A public consultation on the draft TYNDP 2020 is ongoing until 4 January 2021, and a webinar will take place on 4 December 2020.
Today, ENTSO-E and ENTSOG publish their proposed storylines as a first deliverable in the formal process for TYNDP 2022 scenario building, as required by Regulations 943/2019 and 715/2009. All stakeholders are invited to provide feedback until 15 December 2020, ahead of storyline finalisation in early 2021.
Needs have been identified everywhere in Europe, with a total of 50GW of needs on close to 40 borders in 2030 and 43 additional GW on more than 55 borders in 2040. Projects promoters are welcome to submit projects addressing the identified system needs to the TYNDP 2020 until end September.
For the first time in TYNDP 2020 ENTSO-E will launch a second submission window for long-term transmission and storage projects addressing future system needs identified in the System Needs study. Ahead of the release of the study and opening of the window, foreseen in the week of 10 August, ENTSO-E releases today a document to guide project promoters.
Infrastructure planning for the future power system will require a multi-sectorial approach, considering electricity and gas transmission assets but also transport and heat. In line with a ‘One system view’, ENTSO-E publishes today its roadmap for the development of multi-sectorial planning support towards 2030.
ENTSO-E will publish in a few weeks time its ‘Identification of System Needs’ report. The IoSN study investigates where action is needed by 2030 and 2040 to deliver on the climate agenda and improve market integration.
ENTSOG and ENTSO-E have today published the final joint Scenario Report for TYNDP 2020, to support the 5th PCI selection process by European Commission. They have improved the scenarios since the draft report published in November 2019, accounting for post-publication external consultation.
For the first time in the TYNDP2020, projects will be able to submit so-called ‘project-level indicators’. Project-level indicators are costs or benefits that are relevant for the complete assessment of a project, but that cannot be assessed at pan-European level.
In line with Commission Regulation (EC) 347/2013, the draft Cost-Benefit Analysis methodology 3.0 (3rd CBA Guideline for cost benefit analysis of grid development projects) has been submitted to ACER on 11 February 2019.
ENTSO-E and ENTSOG have today published the draft joint Scenario Report for TYNDP 2020, to support the 5th PCI selection process by European Commission. A formal public consultation will be launched in the coming few days until January.
ENTSO-E invites promoters of transmission and storage infrastructure projects to submit their projects to the TYNDP2020, ENTSO-E’s pan-European network development plan. The submission opens today and will close on 22 November.
