Navigant Compares Different Offshore Grid Connection Models

In a new report for RTE and TenneT, Navigant compared different offshore electricity transmission asset development models. The energy experts performed a quantitative cost comparison and qualitative analysis of the two models applied in Europe: ‘Developer Build’ versus ‘Transmission System Operator [TSO] Build’.

In the ‘Developer Build’ model, commercial parties develop and operate the offshore transmission assets. In the ‘TSO Build’ approach, the offshore grid development and operation is mandated to the local TSO by the national government.
