Response on Network Development Plan of German (2035)

February 2021

currENT has submitted a response on the first draft of the German Network Development Plan 2035. 

On the qualification and the use of new technologies in NDPs currENT recommends to:

  • Develop ‘best practices’ across Europe for qualifying new technologies: -Increase transparent sharing of learnings among system operators, countries and wider industry – avoid duplication of pilot projects which slows down the uptake of new solutions and ultimately delays benefits to customers.
  • Require system operators to consider all possible solutions for an identified network need.
  • Align the priorities for innovation to ensure the highest potential innovations are funded, developed, trialled and ultimately rolled out.
