The former GE/Alstom executive Laurent Schmitt has stepped in as the new Secretary General of the European Network of Transmission System Operators for Electricity (ENTSO-E).

IT strategy for TSOs

One of his first actions was to initiate the development of an IT strategy, which is expected to become available in the second half of the year.

“There are two key challenges currently facing TSOs – one is the implementation of the new network codes towards the Integrated European Market and the other is the need for deeper coordination and cooperation both among the TSOs but also with the DSOs,” Schmitt comments. “From the IT point of view, digital is central to these as well as to other TSO topics.”

He adds that it is not that the TSOs are not ‘smart’ already, but rather about «leveraging the next wave of digital to build a new layer of smartness on top». As ENTSO-E we want to enable the TSOs to align their IT systems to facilitate interoperability and to move towards the new digital grid business model.”
