Coordinated Network Development Plan

As the market area manager, AGGM is fulfilling the obligation stipulated in section 14 (1) (7) GWG, and prepares a Coordinated Network Development Plan (CNDP) every year for a 10-year planning period in coordination with the Austrian transmission system operators and taking into account the long-term planning. It is published upon approval.

The aims of the coordinated network development plan (CNDP) are specifically

  • meeting the demand for line capacity to supply consumers while considering emergency scenarios 
  • ensuring a high degree of availability of line capacity (security of supply of the infrastructure) 
  • covering transport needs 
  • complying with the obligation to meet the infrastructure standard according to Article 6 Regulation (EU) No 994/2010 in the market area.
