## About ENTSO-E
ENTSO-E is the European Network of Transmission System Operators for Electricity. ENTSO-E coordinates the cross-border system operations, system development and electricity market activities of the 43 electricity transmission system operators (TSOs) which cover 36 countries. ENTSO-E is assigned important tasks in EU legislation, including the development of Europe-wide electricity network development plans, and of more than 10 network codes which themselves become binding European laws.
The ENTSO-E Secretariat in Brussels is the focal point for technical, market and policy questions for all European TSOs in their cooperation with each other, in their joint fulfilment of their legal mandates, and in the intensive interactions with European Commission, regulatory agencies, associations representing network users and other stakeholders. The role of the TSOs and their cooperation in ENTSO-E is crucial to ensuring security of supply; completing the largest and most competitive electricity market in the world; and successfully integrating large volumes of renewable energy into the system.
ENTSO-E applies a project-aligned method of working. This covers the business case, well-defined scope and deliverables, clear roles for decision making and controlling responsibilities and plans for resources, quality and risk management.
The scope and diversity of ENTSO-E’s work has grown rapidly and is expected to grow further with implementation of network codes and the current challenging energy policy discussions.
