The Development plan is based on four drivers:
the energy transition requires action to fully integrate renewable sources production plants and to continue reducing emissions in a long-term programme.
2. Market Efficiency:
the structure and mix of the so-called “generation facilities” are going through a profound transformation.
3. Security of supply:
the electricity system must not only be safe, but also increasingly resilient and able to cope with external critical events. The 2018 Development Plan introduced a new resilience measure.
4. Systemic sustainability:
grid development must maximise environmental and social, as well as economic, benefits. For this reason, for the first time in 2018, the Development Plan proposes measurable sustainability objectives.
