Elia develops tool to support new grid connections for projects not yet known

The Hosting Capacity Map should help grid users find a suitable location for projects that require a new grid connection. 

At the request of CREG – and as part of an incentive scheme – Elia developed an interactive map that shows available capacity in addition to reserved capacity. The publication shows that all capacity reservations can be connected if the planned infrastructure projects are completed on time. The need for these planned infrastructure projects and the importance to Elia of having a timely overview of future projects is also highlighted. Flexible connections can create two to three times more room on our grid.

  • The tool consists of a map showing available capacity in addition to existing and already reserved capacity
  •  The map is indicative and assumes that the planned infrastructure projects will be completed on time
  • The need for these planned investments is confirmed. Elia is on track to complement them on schedule
  • With flexible connections, more capacity can be connected and the grid can be used more efficiently
  • Reporting projects in good time to the system operator is crucial
