Ten-Year Network Development Plan
For the 2019 edition of its Electricity Report, RTE is presenting a new Ten-Year Network Development Plan, expanded and reorganised to highlight how the energy transition will force networks to evolve. It contains operational recommendations for implementing the Multiannual Energy Programme and was drafted based on broad public consultation with stakeholders. The plan covers all the issues the transmission network must address – industrial, societal, environment and financial (capital expenditure and operating expenses), and sets forth detailed financial trajectories. The time horizon is 15 years (2021-2035), comparable to the general timeframe for the Multiannual Energy Programme and the scenarios in the Generation Adequacy Report published in November 2017. Lastly, the plan was voluntarily subjected to a strategic environmental assessment with assistance from a specialised consultancy.
