Mid-term Adequacy Forecast 2019

Generation not sole factor for EU security of electricity supply: interconnection, flexibility & policy coordination equally important

Will demand for power in Europe be covered in the next decade? What is the impact of climate on our power system? Why is interdependency between European countries essential in assessing security of supply? Why is coordination at all levels necessary?

These are questions addressed in the new edition of ENTSO-E’s Midterm Adequacy Forecast: a state-of-the-art pan-European assessment of security of electricity supply focusing on target years 2021 and 2025.

The 2019 edition includes improvements on thermal generation data, hydropower generation modelling and demand modelling. The input data have been updated considering latest TSO forecasts.

Why your views matter

ENTSO-E consults its Mid-Term Adequacy Forecast (MAF) assessment as part of the process to fulfil Regulation (EC) 714/2009 legal requirements.

The MAF reports have a growing role in the monitoring of the expected European resource adequacy in the coming 10 years. MAF results can support the establishment of countermeasures by relevant stakeholders (e.g. Member State authorities, policy makers, regulatory agencies, energy utilities) to ensure the desired adequacy levels.

What happens next

Your feedback will support us in designing and improving the Mid-Term Adequacy studies, for instance in terms of methodology adjustments or data updates. It will also support the preparation for the Clean Energy Package future implementation.

ENTSO-E would like to thank you for investing your time and effort in helping us deliver a improved MAF with every edition.
