ENTSO-E launches the First European Resource Adequacy Assessment.

  • The ERAA provides an enormous leap forward compared to earlier Mid-Term Adequacy Forecasts.
  • The ERAA assesses how consumer demand can be met across the coming decade, which sets a path to a net-zero system.
  • This assessment takes into account how generation, demand response and other flexible capacity will be affected by evolving market dynamics.
  • This analysis is a valuable tool for policymakers, system operators, and other electricity stakeholders as we follow the important path towards climate neutrality.
  • The central role of electricity in this transition means TSOs must manage an increasingly complex system.
  • The key takeaway from ERAA 2021’s analysis is that Europe’s power system can, with planning, coordination and cooperation, provide secure electricity in the transition to net-zero.

Commenting on the publication, the ENTSO-E Secretary General, Sonya Twohig said: “Our work today is structured by the ambition of delivering net-zero GHG emissions by 2050, a task which requires coordination and cross-border cooperation. In delivering ERAA, ENTSO-E is meeting the need for comprehensive planning to ensure investments and regulatory decisions made today, are in line with our needs for the future. ERAA is a complete and immensely valuable tool delivered as a joint TSO effort for policy makers and anyone seeking to understand adequacy and market dynamics in coming years.”
