A vision for the future
Network development scenarios represent visions of the future, according to which the assessment of projects’ benefits is made using the CBA. The TEN-E Regulation defines which variables should comprise scenarios for electricity and gas. The European Network of Transmission System Operators (ENTSOs) are responsible for developing common network development scenarios for gas and electricity.
What's the role of ACER?
Every two years, ACER provides an Opinion on the draft TYNDP, encompassing our views on scenarios either as its integral part, or through a separate, dedicated opinion on scenarios.
What does ACER say?
ACER is critical about many aspects of the current scenario development process and stresses the importance of a neutral and unbiased approach. Besides improving transparency and infrastructure development governance, ACER advocates for a realistic selection of scenarios.
To achieve these goals, ACER suggests the involvement of appropriate stakeholders, as well as streamlining the process.
