The European Network of Transmission System Operators for Gas (ENTSOG), in cooperation with Gas Infrastructure Europe (GIE), have published the ninth edition of the System Development map, which illustrates existing and planned gas infrastructure and gas capacities.
This map is updated on a yearly basis and is a widely used reference for European and non-European stakeholders alike. It provides useful, accurate and up-to-date information about the recent gas demand in European countries and the capacities in the European gas infrastructure. Historical demand and supply data are also presented.
Jan Ingwersen, ENTSOG General Director, said, “Information and transparency remain key to support the EU’s energy markets and security of supply and to deliver on the EU Green Deal’s objectives. The System Development Map, published together with GIE, is just one of the tools to do that – it allows for efficient analysis by market stakeholders and it is a useful supplement to the ENTSOG Seasonal Supply Reports.”
Boyana Achovski, GIE Secretary General, said: “Over the years, our energy system tends to become more and more integrated, considering interactions between sectors, regions and energy carriers. To tackle the increasing complexity of the future market developments, decision makers need to have access to the most exhaustive, integrated, and up-to-date information. And we provide that.”
ENTSOG and GIE are committed to further enhancing the information provided on the map for future editions and welcome feedback from stakeholders.
