Title: Strategic Energy Review

  • Strategic Energy Review
  • and
  • Priority Interconnection Plan
  • Regulators Electricity Infrastructure Workshop
  • Brussels, 13 February 2007
  • Dr Wolfgang Kerner, DG TREN, B1

  • Need for Common Energy Policy
  • Energy for a Changing World
  • Completion of the Internal Market
  • European Grid for a European Electricity
    Gas Market
  • Priority Interconnection Plan
  • Conclusions

  • Need for common European Energy policy
  • Increasing import dependence of EU
  • Coherent energy mix
  • Completion of Internal Energy Market
  • Need for European Transmission Grid
  • It has become apparent to the European
    citizens as well as to the policy makers that
    Europe must develop a common energy policy.
  • Increasingly interlinked regional and national
    markets give customers the benefit of better
    service quality, a wider choice of the energy mix
    and competitive prices.

  • 1) Core Strategic energy objective
  • 2) Number of strategic reports
  • Energy Policy for Europe
  • Report a) Strategic European Energy
    Review (SEER)
  • Communications being part of the Energy package
  • Reports b) j) Priority
    Interconnection Plan
  • 3) Concrete action plan
  • Core objectives for EU by 2020 (relative to 1990)
  • Reduce Greenhouse Gas emissions by 20 (80 of
    GHG from energy CO2 emission are 75 of GHG)
  • Improve energy efficiency by 20
  • Increase share of renewable energy to 20
    Increase use of biofuels in transport to 10

  • Energy for a Changing World
  • Communications being part of the Energy package
  • b) Renewable Energy Road Map

  • j) Towards a Strategic Energy Technology Plan

  • Energy Action Plan
  • On 10 January 2007, a first package of concrete
  • A report on the implementation by the Member
    States of the internal market of gas and
    electricity results of the sectoral enquiry of
    DG Competition.
  • A Priority Interconnection Plan for electricity
    and gas networks
  • Proposals to promote sustainable power
    generation from fossil fuels
  • A renewable energy roadmap and other initiatives
    to promote renewables, notably bio-fuels for
  • An indicative nuclear programme for the
    Community (PINC)
  • A Communication preparing a European Energy
    Strategic Technology Plan.

  • Completion of the Internal Energy Market
  • Ownership unbundling
  • To split vertically integrated companies - or
    by full
  • Independent System Operator - ISO
  • Functioning European wide Regulation with
    Effective Regulation in every Member State
  • Europe wide electricity and gas networks
  • - At the heart of a well functioning
    European market
  • - Sufficient transmission capacity needs to
    be available
  • - Increased investment in the network with
    a pan European
  • objective is needed.

  • Operation
  • European grid code
  • - Capacity allocation rules (regulation
  • - Security rules (regulation 1228/2003)
  • - Emergency operation rules
  • Harmonised regulation (European Energy regulator)
  • Physical security (critical infrastructure
  • Organisation
  • Office of Energy Observation Monitoring,
    Transparency Reporting
  • Independent TSOs association? ISO

  • Statistics on projects progress

  • Status of Projects of European Interest
  • Status of Implementation of the 42 Projects of
    European Interest
  • Action 1 Identification of the most important
    infrastructure encountering significant
    difficulties has been made

  • Structural Problems
  • Status of Implementation of the 42 Projects of
    European Interest
  • Action 2 Appointing European coordinators
  • The Commission will propose early in 2007
    the designation of European Coordinators to
    facilitate the completion of the following
  • For electricity
  • Power link between Germany, Poland and Lithuania,
    especially Alytus Elk (back-to-back station)
  • Connection of offshore wind power in Northern
    Europe (Denmark, Germany and Poland)
  • Connection between France and Spain, especially
    Sentmenat (ES) Bescanó (ES) Baixas (FR) line.
  • For gas
  • NABUCCO pipeline.

  • Way forward
  • Open and transparent planning of grids according
  • consumer needs
  • Action 3 Coordinated planning at regional levels
  • The Commission will propose in 2007
    establishing a
  • strengthened framework for TSOs responsible
    for coordinated
  • network planning

  • Action 4 Streamlining of authorisation
  • The Commission will in 2007 begin revising
    the TEN-E Guidelines with a view to requiring the
    Member States, with due regard to the
    subsidiarity principle, to set up national
    procedures under which planning and approval
    processes for projects of European interest
    should be completed in a maximum time span of
    five years.
  • Action 5 EU funding
  • For specific purposes the Commission will examine
  • in the 2008 revision of the Financial
  • whether increased EU funding for TEN-E networks
  • necessary.

  • Investment Levels
  • According to TSOs forecasts, mid term (up to year
    2013) investments are around 4 b /yr.
  • A steadily high investment level is expected
    for up to 2023.
  • IEA projections for total grid investment needs
    in the EU (2001-2010) are 49 b.
  • Cross-border investments are at present 200 M /
  • The 32 electricity Projects of European interest
    require 6 b .
  • The resulting (cross-border) investments are
    then 700 800 M / yr.
  • Investments required to connect offshore wind
    farms to onshore grids are in the range of 0.9
    -1.3 b /yr in the mid-term.
  • In the long term a sharp increase to 1.7 -2.5 b
    /yr is needed

  • Conclusions
  • Planning at regional level
  • The fragmentation of the planning and
    authorisation rules needs to be overcome.
  • A time span of five years for planning, approval
    and construction should be the target.
  • Priorities ? Responsibilities ?Means?
  • Wind power Transmission corridors

  • Legislative action
  • Strong link between the TEN-E priorities and
    effective implementation procedures.
  • Revision of TEN-E Guidelines
