ENTSO-E preparing to release TYNDP 2012 Package for public consultation on 1 March and to hold a TYNDP workshop 28 March

(PresseBox) ( Brussels, )
On 1 March, ENTSO-E will launch a public consultation on its 2012 ten-year network development plan (TYNDP) package comprising six detailed regional investment plans (RgIps) and the Scenario Outlook & Adequacy Forecast (SO&AF) 2012 - 2030 as well as the pan-European TYNDP 2012 report. The consultation will last 8 weeks and will close on 26 April. As part of this public consultation, ENTSO-E will hold a stakeholder workshop on 28 March 2012 and anyone interested in participating in the workshop is invited to register.

This forward-looking pan-European report and the corresponding regional investment plans are the most comprehensive and up-to-date European-wide reference for the transmission network development. They point to significant investment needs in the European power grid in order to help achieve Europe's major energy policy goals: the integration of renewable energy sources; market integration and security of supply.

In this context the TYNDP package aims at ensuring transparency regarding the electricity transmission network and at supporting decision-making at regional and European level.

With the release of the TYNDP 2012 package for public consultation, ENTSO-E responds to the requirements of current regulation, in particular Art 8.3-b of Regulation (EC) 714/2009 mandating ENTSO-E to adopt a non-binding Community-wide TYNDP and a generation adequacy outlook every two years.

The aim of the consultation is to collect valuable stakeholder feedback in view of enhancing these documents for their final release in June 2012 and their future editions in the coming years. The TYNDP 2012 package will become available on the ENTSO-E website (www.entsoe.eu) on 1 March and stakeholders will have the possibility to comment on the reports via ENTSO-E's web consultation interface for a period of 8 weeks.

The opening of the consultation on the TYNDP 2012 package will be announced separately, closer to the date. Stakeholders are asked to register with ENTSO-E's News Alert to ensure they are notified.
