ENTSO-E will publish in a few weeks time its ‘Identification of System Needs’ report. The IoSN study investigates where action is needed by 2040 to deliver on the climate agenda and improve market integration. For the first time, the study was conducted for both the 2030 and 2040 time horizons.

The 2018 edition of the IoSN study found that not reinforcing the cross-border transmission grid would cost Europe 43 Billion euro per year by 2040. 156 TWh of renewable electricity would be wasted per year in 2040.

Alongside the pan-European assessment of system needs, ENTSO-E will also release six Regional Investment Plans delving more into details into regional needs and containing additional sensitivity studies.
