ENTSO-E opens today a public consultation on the Ten-Year Network Development Plan (TYNDP) 2024, on the scope of studies planned to be performed and the stakeholder engagement plan.

ENTSO-E’s TYNDP is the pan-European electricity infrastructure development plan. Released every two years, it provides a wide European vision of the future power system and investigates how power links and storage can be used to make the energy transition happen in a cost-effective and secure way.
