ENERGY CORRIDOR OPTIMISATION, FOR THE EUROPEAN MARKETS OF GAS, ELECTRICITY AND HYDROGEN

Objective

Successful integration of energy systems in Europe is deeply depending on the opening up of energy markets in EU and neighbouring countries in the next decades. Since the EU is increasingly depending on imports of fossil energy, electricity and (later) hydrogen, it is clear that these network infrastructures depending trade requires a proper technical, economic and environmental assessment of the potential, benefits and barriers of such energy corridor. Key Objectives:
- Assessing economically optimal energy corridors (electricity, natural gas and hydrogen) between EU and neighbouring countries.
- Identifying barriers and benefits and recommend policy measures for reaching a pan-European energy network.
- Scope Secure consensus among scientists, stakeholders and NGO's on these topics, i.e. by organising regularly workshops to discuss findings and results, invite them to discuss work programme at the kick-off and final report with conclusions and recommendations at a final conference.
- Analyse and determine the economic, environmental and socio-economic impacts of the optimum configurations of these energy interconnections.
- Disseminate conclusions and recommendations to enforce consensus and concrete actions regarding investment in and changing market policies to increase access to transmission corridors between EU and neighbouring countries and cross border trade in electricity and gas and later after 2020 hydrogen.

Approach based on recent studies on the energy corridors we identify and analyse potential and required capacities and routing. We quantify for each energy carrier the optimal configurations and capacities and their impact. Finally per energy carrier follows a final assessment of benefits and barriers and optimised configuration of these corridors. Thereafter an integrated analysis of all 3 corridors into the overall European energy system is conducted to create a sustainable European energy system and dissemination of results takes place
