The present Report, after offering an overview of the regulatory and market framework affecting the EU transmission system at large, and the renewable energy deployment in particular:
- lists and compares the technical requirements and the charging policy for the connection of new power plants to the European transmission grid, specifically focusing on wind generation (whenever related technical specifications are applied);
- provides an updated picture of the European transmission network planning challenges and practices, also by devoting special attention to the interactions between system development and (onshore/offshore) wind deployment.
