Building on the previous scenario reports, the cooperative work of gas and electricity planning experts across Europe and the public consultation of the draft report published on 7 October 2021, the updated joint TYNDP 2022 Scenario Report is more ambitious, more inclusive, and more transparent than previous editions. It includes two COP21-compliant scenarios and ENTSO-E and ENTSOG have gone to great lengths to capture the impact of the fast-moving and fast-paced energy transition on electricity and gas infrastructure. This report is the common building block of the future gas and electricity TYNDPs and contains a series of important highlights for the future of Europe’s energy system:
The updated joint TYNDP 2022 Scenario Report comes with enlarged data sets available through a dedicated data visualisation platform. These scenario data sets can be used by stakeholders to do their own studies on possible energy futures. ENTSOG and ENTSO-E have also provided full transparency on how scenarios are built and how each factor influencing the development of gas and electricity infrastructure is considered.
ENTSOG and ENTSO-E will continue striving to improve their scenario report, engaging as early as possible with stakeholders, increasing transparency and usability. Both associations hope this report will give readers a qualitative insight into the impact of the energy transition on Europe’s future gas and electricity networks.
