Dimitrios Chaniotis, Committee Chair for ENTSO-E System Development, says that the year 2030 is associated with ambitious targets set by energy and climate policy objectives which impact the way the grid is developed, operated and marketed.
The European Network of Transmission System Operators for Electricity (ENTSO-E) vision for 2030 has sparked debate of a revolution in the power system and the consequent opportunities and threats to the power system. The vision combines the simultaneous development of markets and operators and asks what should be done when the markets are harnessed for the good of the energy revolution.
Stakeholders message to ENTSO-E: Stay transparent and fair, develop flexibility – and save the world
As many as nine partners and stakeholders offered their views on ENTSO-E and its development during the first ten years. Peter Claes, Vice President, IFIEC, said that ENTSO-E is doing a fine job, but there’s still room for improvement.
The institutional perspective session kicked off with a video greeting by Claude Turmes, Minister for Energy of the Government of Luxembourg, who said that ENTSO-E has taken “a gigantic step” in ten years.
“Now we need you for another gigantic step – how do we win against climate change?”
Joachim Vanzetta, Chair of the Board for ENTSO-E, believes that the TSOs in ENTSO-E will continue to strive to find the right balance between the dimensions of the energy trilemma: sustainability, affordability and security of supply/system security.
The ENTSO-E 10 Years Conference, held in Helsinki, Finland, on 13th November 2019, takes a look at various issues affecting the European electricity transmission system operators (TSOs) now and in the future. ENTSO-E, the European Network of Transmission System Operators for Electricity, represents 43 TSOs from 36 countries across Europe.
The first decade of the ENTSO-E, founded ten years ago, has been full of changes. But the pace of the organisation will not slow down in the future, and one of the reasons for this is the energy transition. What is certain is that European cooperation will only become more important in the future.
