SET-Nav Topical Workshop, 24 March 2017, Brussels, Belgium

The second SET-Nav stakeholder event in Brussels "What architecture for the EU's future electricity infrastructure? Impacts of decentralised and centralised generation on the transmission grid" was held on the 24th March 2017 from 9.30am - 12.45 pm and organised by CEPS.

The location of a large part of renewable capacity was decided based on the availability of its resource. This means that a substantial amount of capacity was installed in areas located away from consumption areas; at present, these areas tend to be weakly connected to the rest of the system. As a result, there will be a need for specific transmission connections as well as reinforcements to bring the new renewable power from the place of production to areas where it will be consumed.
