The energy system is going through radical changes with global trends such as decarbonisation and digitalisation. The European Green Deal aims to catalyse this transformation to achieve climate neutrality by 2050. Only electrification and sectoral integration of energy end uses can deliver on this ambitious goal placing the electricity system and the electricity grid at the core of the transition, away from fossil fuels. This calls for electricity TSOs to develop bold and agile strategies as integrators of technologies and solutions.
With three main clusters and six flagships and clearly defined milestones, ENTSO-E’s Research, Development and Innovation Roadmap (RDI Roadmap) for the period 2020-2030 aims to be an ambitious innovation planning tool, pooling up the vision and needs of TSOs with the surrounding ecosystems, policy experts and other stakeholders.
As one of ENTSO-E’s legal mandates, the RDI Roadmap 2020-2030 was subject to a public consultation and opinion by ACER.
