Next steps

In this report ENTSOG and ENTSO-E propose the draft scenarios for TYNDP 2022. The publication of this draft scenario report marks the start of the official scenario consultation. The next steps are the following:

  • With the publication of this draft scenario report an online public consultation is launched. Stakeholders are invited to share their opinion and give feedback on the proposals within this report. Stakeholder comments are greatly welcomed and are considered an essential part of the scenario development process.
  • The completion of electricity market modelling for the National Trends scenario for the 2040 time horizon enabling the quantification of coupling between the electricity, methane and hydrogen systems.
  • Upon receiving the stakeholder feedback, ENTSOG and ENTSO-E will update and finalise the scenario report and submit it to ACER for its opinion. This updated scenario report for ACER submission is expected to be published in early 2022.
  • The updated scenarios’ report feed into the TYNDP 2022 development process. The electricity and gas draft TYNDPs are expected to be published in Q3 2022 for public consultation.
  • Further to receiving the public consultation feedback as well as ACER’s opinion, ENTSOG and ENTSO-E will publish their respective TYNDPs.
  • Both TYNDPs will support the 6th PCI selection process.

In the meantime, ENTSOG and ENTSO-E are currently working together on the further development of their Interlinked Model for the identification of projects worth a dual assessment on both gas and electricity systems.
