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.
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.
Network planning requires national and international cooperation. A vital tool for this is Europe’s ten-year network development plan (TYNDP), which is drafted every two years by the European Network of Transmission System Operators for Electricity (ENTSO-E).
