Network development plan

The network development plan (NDP) is a statutory requirement for APG under Section 37 of the 2010 Austrian Electricity Industry and Organisation Act (Elektrizitätswirtschafts- und -organisationsgesetz, ElWOG 2010). The NDP is based on APG’s long-term strategic planning and the Europe-wide coordinated Ten-Year Network Development Plan (TYNDP) issued by the European Network of Transmission System Operators for Electricity (ENTSO-E). It provides information on the main development and infrastructure projects relevant to the APG transmission grid. 
The NDP includes a list of investments that have already been decided on as well as the projects required to be implemented within the next three years. In addition, the network development plan depicts the system plan for the next ten years, taking account of forecast developments in the energy market. The projects included in the plan are categorised into projects that are of national or European interest as well as transmission system network and grid connection projects.
