Electricity systems are facing great challenges across the world to achieve the climate change mitigation targets set by governments. The transition to a decarbonized economy will entail unprecedented amounts of transmission investment due to the fact that low-carbon energy sources are usually located far from the load centres, rendering the transmission investment framework of primary importance. Another big challenge to cost-efficient decarbonization will be the greater requirement for operational flexibility to deal with large and rapid changes in demand and supply. It is critical to highlight that the long lead times that characterize conventional transmission projects render them more prone to these adverse effects. In contrast, projects aimed at improving the use of the existing assets and infrastructure, such as energy storage (ES) and FACTS, have been shown to assist with interim uncertainty management and embed strategic flexibility within an investment plan. The above points indicate that the ongoing decarbonization effort is altering fundamental aspects of the transmission planning process. The objective is to identify strategies that include an optimal mix of (i) flexibility-driven elements for interim network management (ii) large-scale commitments characterized by economies of scale, which can be deployed once uncertainty has been resolved.
