ENTSO-E publishes today a document to guide TYNDP2020 promoters in the submission of project-level indicators. Promoters may submit project-level indicators until 31 August 2020.

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. They include, among others, benefits in terms of balancing energy exchange, frequency stability, or reduction of necessary reserve for re-dispatch power plants.

Most project-level benefits must be based on a study performed by the promoter or by a third party, in compliance with the CBA Guideline 3.0. Project-level benefits submitted by promoters will be published in the draft TYNDP2020 project sheets, alongside the benefits assessed in ENTSO-E's cost-benefit analysis. ENTSO-E will then review the conformity of the submitted benefits with the CBA Guideline 3.0 and only the validated benefits will be included in the TYNDP2020 package submitted to ACER for opinion.

The available project-level benefits and the process and timeline to submit them were first presented to project promoters in a webinar organised on 19 February. Additional webinars will take place in May to further guide promoters in the submission of these indicators:

- Friday, 15 May, 14:00: Webinar on project-level indicators for transmission projects -> Register

- Monday, 25 May, 14:00: Webinar on project-level indicators for storage projects -> Register

A Practical Guide on completing the projects sheets, also explaining how to submit PLIs in the platform, is available.

For any question, project promoters may contact Johannes Moolman.
