Possible process adjustments of innovations in the future network development plan

The ever increasing renewable energy expansion targets of the Federal Government result in the calculations for the target year 2030 an ever higher arithmetical utilization of the existing networks as well as the already planned and already established in the Federal Requirement Plan Network. Several approaches are currently under discussion to advance technical solutions to ensure system operation even without full expansion planning. These include large-area load flow control, more automation in the transmission network as well as the large-scale use of energy storage devices and the associated shift away from primary-side n-1 safety.

After a detailed analysis of the network planning process by E-Bridge, the current process is to

  1. Implement an additional process step that complements innovation identification and assessment;
  2. extend today’s energy industry scenarios with a selection of technical innovations; and
  3. consult the final choice of measures and to co-ordinated with greater attention to long-term developments.

The results of the study will be discussed by TenneT with network operators, politics and other stakeholders this year. The aim is to develop joint recommendations for a sustainable and effective network planning process.
