External stakeholders representing the gas and electricity industries, customers and environmental NGOs, regulators, EU Members States and the European Commissions were key in building an ambitious, yet technically sound, set of scenarios.
The Scenario Building team has worked jointly with stakeholders through interactive workshops, webinars and web-consultations. Dozens of stakeholders provided input to formulate, with the ENTSOs, the new scenarios storylines.
As a result, the ENTSOs scenarios uniquely represent generally accepted, yet highly ambitious, views of what the future could look like, rather than a view of the future desired or promoted by any organisation. They will allow the testing of Europe’s future energy infrastructures under varied and stressing situations.
The development process is covered in detail by the material released prior to the publication of this report, the high-level process for these storylines followed the steps as shown:
- Public workshop: “TYNDP 2020 Scenario Development Workshop”, 29 May 2018
- Publication of first draft of five storylines describing potential relevant futures for the electricity and gas system in Europe developed by ENTSO-E and ENTSOG, 2 July 2018
- Public consultation of storylines: “2020 Scenario Storylines”, 2 July to 14 September 2018
- Public Webinar on “Scenario Development Process Update”, 21 November 2018 (presentation send to participants via email)
- Public Webinar on Final Storyline Release, 18 April 2019
- Publication of Final Storylines, 29 May 2019
- ENTSOG’s Public Workshop on the Supply Potentials and Market Related Assumptions for TYNPD 2020, 10 July 2019
