Establishing requirements

The goal in expanding the grid is to build no more new lines than necessary. This means we need to be able to predict energy requirements as accurately as possible.

Each new round of identifying the requirements begins once a year with a Scenario Framework which presents the likely developments in energy generation and consumption. The Framework serves as the basis for the Network Development Plan drafted by the transmission system operators and listing all the expansion measures needed over the next few years.
