ENTSO-E publishes a study assessing the impact of reduction of inertia on the frequency stability of the Continental Europe synchronous area. Based on the TYNDP2018 long-term scenarios and market studies, the report investigates - under a set of assumptions - a very large set of possible combinations of system split cases between market nodes in the synchronous area of Continental Europe.

Decreasing levels of inertia – as a result of the large-scale integration of renewable sources – pose long-term challenges to frequency stability of the transmission system, with possible impacts on the resilience of the future system. ENTSO-E is committed to enabling a sustainable energy transition that combines high levels of security of supply and decarbonisation of the power system as key drivers for achieving the 2030 and 2050 EU climate targets.
