ENTSO-E is delivering pan-European outlooks of the power system in the short, mid, and long-term. These are based on scenarios describing possible energy futures for Europe. These outlooks allow the TSO community to coordinate actions at pan-European level. ENTSO-E’s outlooks also provide technically-sound information to policymakers and stakeholders to support them in their decision-making.
The graphic below captures the different outlooks and their time horizons.
Summer & Winter Outlooks
ENTSO-E analyses possible risks for the security of supply in Europe twice a year: for the summer and winter periods. Because of possible very high/low temperatures and other 'extreme' weather conditions, winters and summers are more the most critical periods for the power grid.Open seasonal outlooks
European Resource Adequacy Assessment
The ERAA presents the first pan-European probabilistic assessment of adequacy - the ability of a power system to cover demand in all conditions - up to 10 years ahead.Visite ERAA site
Ten-Year Network Development Plan
The 10-year network development plan or TYNDP analyses what infrastructure needs to be built in Europe according to a series of visions of how the power system may evolve in the longer term; up to 2040. The TYNDP is published every two years.Visit TYNDP site
Regional Investment Plans
What should the electricity grid look like in the next decades to create maximum value for Europeans, ensure continuous access to electricity throughout Europe and deliver on the climate agenda? ENTSO-E provides answers to these questions by releasing six Regional Investment PlansView plans
Scenarios are a prerequisite for any study analysing the future of the European energy system. They describe possible European energy futures up to 2050 by which to test future infrastructure needs and projects.Visit Scenarios page
