The electricity transmission system operators (TSOs) of Continental Europe have signed agreements with Ukrenergo and Moldelectrica late June on the Conditions for the Future Interconnection of the power system of Ukraine and Moldova with the power system of Continental Europe. This agreement has now come into force
The European Network for Transmission System Operators for Electricity, ENTSO-E, has commissioned a report from THEMA Consulting on the state-of-play of data exchange platforms in Europe and on recommendations for the future.
Following the success for the sixth year in a row of their joint conference on innovation in electricity grids, INNOGRID2020+, the association for electricity distribution system operators, EDSO for Smart Grids, and the European network of transmission system operators for electricity, ENTSO-E, commit to join forces on speeding up the smartening of the electricity system.
The Board of ENTSO-E, the European association of transmission system operators (TSOs) for electricity, has appointed Mr Fintan Slye, Chief Executive of the Irish TSO, EirGrid, as Vice-Chair.
Mr Hervé Laffaye, Deputy CEO of the French transmission system operator (RTE) becomes Vice-President of ENTSO-E today.

By 2030, at least 75 billion devices will be connected to the internet generating 75 trillions gigabytes of data. From 100 000 in 2015, there could be 18 million full electric vehicles in Europe by 2030 as charging becomes more widely available and cities invest in smart & clean mobility. In electricity, all consumers should by then be equipped with smart meters.
This report addresses the needs for data exchange in the emerg- ing power system and discusses data exchange models, firstly providing an extensive overview of the existing solutions and setting criteria for them in a second step. Data exchange plat- forms have been introduced in many European countries, driven by a need for efficient processes and better data quality, initially in retail markets. Recent regulatory developments mandate in- creased cooperation and aim to empower customers to partici- pate actively in both the retail and wholesale energy markets, thus further increasing the requirement for data exchange between all stakeholders. Hence, future data exchange platforms can take on a role in the overall power system and point towards an integrated wholesale-retail market. The report concludes with an outlook on possible development trajectories in data exchange.
The European Network for Cyber Security (ENCS) and the European Network of Transmission System Operators for Electricity (ENTSO-E) today sign a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to develop state of the art cyber security regulation, practices & standards for the electricity transmission system.
