4.5.1. European network operators

The European Network of Transmission System Operators - Electricity (ENTSO-E) represents electricity transmission system operators throughout Europe. ENTSO-E is publishing annual mid-term adequacy forecasts (ENTSO-E, 2017) as well as ten year network development plans (TYNDP) (ENTSO-E, 2018). Resource adequacy reports seek to analyse the balance between available energy generation and load levels through modelling-tools. ENTSO-E modelling now explicitly incorporates current and projected climate data, allowing an examination of climate change impacts on the adequacy of the EU electricity transmission system. TYNDPs offer a series of possible energy futures to deliver European energy targets, whilst incorporating projected climate change impacts on energy systems within their modelling. More information on these scenarios is presented in Section 2.2.2.

The European Network of Transmission System Operators – Gas (ENTSO-G) follows very similar processes to ENTSO-E, with whom they work closely. They analyse disruption scenarios to the European gas supply and the resilience of the system to such events. The results are taken into account in the TYNDP for natural gas.
