CAN Europe responded to the European transmission grid operators’ consultation on the scenarios of their Ten Year Network Development Plan 2020.
Powerlines and gas pipelines are the backbone of our energy supply. Grid operators urgently have to prepare this infrastructure to enable a swift transition to a 100% renewables supply.
Current infrastructure plans however risk deepening Europe’s dependency on fossil gas. The new Ten-Year Network Development Plan (TYNDP) also bets on CCS as the helping hand for saving the climate while being very shy on renewable energy potentials.
