Next Steps

In this report ENTSOG and ENTSO-E propose the scenario storylines for TYNDP 2022. This publication is an important foundation for further scenario building and quantification , which spans until the end of this year. This is further illustrated in the Figure 16.

Next steps in the scenario building process are the following:

  • In Spring 2021 ENTSOG and ENTSO-E will organise a workshop to present the approach about energy import potentials to all stakeholders. Energy suppliers are invited to present their view to cover the various aspects of this topic.
  • Now that the final storylines have been established, ENTSOG and ENTSO-E will perform the ­quantification and modelling needed to build the TYNDP 2022 ­scenarios. With this modelling the (qualitative) storylines will be translated into fully quantified scenarios. A draft scenario report including datasets is expected to be published mid-2021, as part of the next major public consultation phase.
  • ENTSOG and ENTSO-E will use all consultation feedback to refine and establish the final quantified scenarios to be used in TYNDP 2022. The final scenario report is ­expected to be published in early 2022. The final ­scenarios feed into the TYNDP 2022 development process. The scenario datasets are used within the system needs assessment process and the cost-benefit analysis (CBA) for the PCI selection.
