Non-binding market demand survey on incremental capacity for interconnection points (3)

05 July 2022

We inform you that as of today, 5th July 2022, the Transmission System Operator has launched a non-binding market demand assessment on incremental capacity for interconnection points. Transmission System Operator, in accordance with the Articles 26 to 29 of the Commission Regulation (EU) 2017/459, invites all Network Users to fill in the non-binding incremental capacity survey on this link, which will be available for eight weeks, until 30th August 2022. 

Participants are reminded that a non-binding request for firm capacity on an interconnection has to be submitted to both neighbouring transmission system operators. If two entities plan to submit a request jointly, one on the one side and the other one on the other side of the interconnection point, then the interest should be expressed in a joint request with both neighbouring operators at the interconnection point.

Please send duly completed survey to e-mail: SKR@plinovodi.si

European Hydrogen Backbone (EHB) initiative presents a new Study: sufficient hydrogen available within reach of the European Hydrogen backbone

15 June 2021

Today, the European Hydrogen Backbone (EHB) initiative, a group of 23 gas infrastructure companies, presented an analysis on future demand, supply, and transport of hydrogen. This study complements the recently published EHB maps. The EU and UK could see a hydrogen demand of around 2,300 TWh by 2050. This equals to about 20-25% of future EU and UK energy demand. Expected hydrogen demand could potentially be met by green and blue hydrogen within the EU and UK. The study also shows that hydrogen imports by pipeline can provide an attractive complement to domestic supply. Hydrogen pipelines are the most cost-efficient option of hydrogen transport, outcompeting transport by ship and powerlines. Read more here.

Decarbonisation in Central-Eastern and South-Eastern Europe

23 April 2021

On 21 April 2021, the Association of European Gas Infrastructure Operators GIE (Gas Infrastructure Europe) published a report on decarbonisation in Eastern and South-Eastern Europe. The report includes an in-depth analysis of the role of gases and the existing gas infrastructure for 10 EU Member States. The gas infrastructure plays an essential role in decarbonising the regions, both in the short- and long-term. It provides switch from coal to natural gas to hydrogen and it plays a role as an enabler of the energy transition towards low-carbon gases. A significant reduction in greenhouse gas emissions would already be achieved cost efficiently by replacing most carbon intensive fuels with natural gas. The report is available here.

European Hydrogen Backbone (EHB) initiative presents an updated version of its vision for a dedicated hydrogen transport infrastructure across Europe

13 April 2021

Today, the European Hydrogen Backbone (EHB) initiative, a group of 23 gas infrastructure companies, presents an updated version of its vision for a dedicated hydrogen transport infrastructure across Europe. The group proposes a hydrogen network of 39,700km by 2040, with further growth expected after 2040. This grid connects 21 European countries. The vision launched today follows the EHB report published in July 2020, which sparked a debate across Europe. That report described a network of 23,000km covering ten countries. Read more here.

ENTSOG Roadmap 2050 for Gas Grids

16 March 2020

ENTSOG has published ENTSOG's 2050 Roadmap for Gas Grids. This Roadmap is a reflection of European Gas Transmission System Operators (TSOs) views on how to make the gas grids ready for energy transition.

The aim of the Roadmap is to provide ENTSOG's recommendations for the European Green Deal discussions and highlight gas TSOs' proposals on how to effectively combine well-functioning, liquid gas market and achieve effective security of gas supply with the commitment to decarbonise.

This Roadmap offers three possible pathways forward for the Member States, industry and consumers on how to achieve Net-Zero Greenhouse Gas emissions by 2050 with gas grids:

  • Methane Pathway
  • Blending Hydrogen and Methane Pathway
  • Hydrogen Pathway

Please find below the links to the three ENTSOG Roadmap documents:
