Mid-term Adequacy Forecast 2018

Closes 9 Nov 2018

Opened 3 Oct 2018


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 interdependency between European countries is essential in assessing security of supply? Why coordination at all levels is 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 up to 2020 and 2025.

The 2018 edition has consolidated, improved and standardised methodology. The input data have been updated considering latest TSO forecasts.

Why We Are Consulting

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 monitoring of European expected resource adequacy in 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.
