ENTSO-E Scenario Outlook and Adequacy Forecast 2013-2030 Soon to be Published

(PresseBox) ( Brussels, )
On 3 April 2013, ENTSO-E will publish the Scenario Outlook and Adequacy Forecast (SO&AF) 2013-2030 report. One of ENTSO-E's key publications, the national, regional and Europe-wide SO&AF 2013 analyses assess the expected trends of system load in light of the on-going economic constraints, and the evolution of different generation types related to European renewable energy goals, national nuclear shutdown decisions and CO2 emission reduction efforts.

Looking at longer time horizons and improvements in dealing with uncertainties constitute the major changes compared to last year's SO&AF. SO&AF 2013 contains quantitative data on two Visions for 2030, providing a bridge between the 2020 and 2050 EU energy targets. System adequacy receives increased attention, as input for policy makers and the market for identifying any potential capacity mechanism needs.

The SO&AF methodology, refined over decades, assesses expected developments for load and installed generation capacity, taking into account uncertainties such as generation maintenance and outages and renewable energy availabilities. These data are forecast and analysed for three different 2020 Scenarios and the two new 2030 Visions. The ensuing results give indications on which countries or European regions will be likely to depend on imports for their security of supply.
