In mid-September 2021, ENTSO-E will begin collecting applications from transmission and storage projects for the TYNDP 2022. To allow project promoters to prepare in advance of the submission period, ENTSO-E has released, on the 7th of June 2021, a draft Guidance document and invites projects promoters and interested stakeholders to comment and raise questions.
The Guidance specifies in particular:
The public consultation will close on 18 July 2021. ENTSO-E will review the Guidance based on the comments received and will publish the final version in late August 2021. The provisional window for project promoters to submit projects to the TYNDP 2022 is 15 September 2021 to 15 October 2021.
For any questions, project promoters may contact our SPOC. Our team will be happy to help you.
You’ll be notified in advance of the key steps of the application process and will be kept informed about relevant documents for project promoters, such as the Guidance for applying to the TYNDP or the CBA methodology.
Selection in the TYNDP is a pre-condition for transmission and storage projects to apply to obtain Projects of Common Interest status. The PCI selection process is separate from the TYNDP process, under the responsibility of the Regional Groups led by the European Commission. TYNDP projects wanting to obtain PCI status must apply for selection during the PCI candidate submission phase.
The window to submit a project for selection in the 5th PCI list closed on 7 January 2021.
The draft Guidance now submitted to public consultation aims at informing transmission and storage projects promoters on the procedure and timeline; the technical and administrative criteria their projects will be required to meet; the documents and information project promoters will be required to submit to fulfill these criteria; the use and circulation of the information submitted, and; other use of information regarding applications, including contact details. ENTSO-E will review the Guidance based on the comments received and will publish the final version in late August 2021.
