European Resource Adequacy Assessment 2023

Closed 31 Jan 2024

Opened 18 Dec 2023


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

These are some of the questions addressed in the third edition of ENTSO-E’s European Resource Adequacy Assessment (ERAA): a state-of-the-art pan-European monitoring assessment of power system resource adequacy of up to 10 years ahead. The ERAA has been a leap forward in system modelling - it is based upon state-of-the-art methodologies and probabilistic assessments, aiming to model and analyse possible events which can adversely impact the balance between supply and demand of electric power. 

The 2023 edition includes analysis that better accounts for the realities and complexities of the single electricity market, an unparalleled data set which has been updated after a public call for evidence, and an enhanced economic viability assessment.

Why your views matter

ENTSO-E consults stakeholders on its European Resource Adequacy Assessment (ERAA) as part of the process to fulfil Regulation (EU) 2019/943 ('Electricity Regulation') legal requirements.

Furthermore, ENTSO-E relies on the contributions of stakeholders to develop the ERAA. ENTSO-E has regularly consulted with stakeholders during the development of this 2023 assessment. ENTSO-E now organizes a public consultation of stakeholders to gather feedback on the ERAA 2023 report and further the improvement of the ERAA. 

Following the methodologies as approved by ACER on 2 October 2020, the ERAA is a key tool for the detection of adequacy concerns at a pan-European level. The ERAA aims to provide stakeholders and policy makers with the data and insights necessary to make informed, qualified decisions and promote the development of the European power system in a reliable, sustainable and connected manner. It is an important element for supporting qualified decisions by policy makers on strategic matters such as how to address adequacy concerns in the longer run.

What happens next

Your feedback will support us in designing and improving the European Resource Adequacy studies, for instance in terms of methodology adjustments or data updates.

ENTSO-E would like to thank you for investing your time and effort in helping us to improve future editions of the ERAA.
