The European Transmission System operators (TSOs) for electricity and gas play a central role in the energy system. Investments in transmission networks by TSOs are crucial for the integration of the European electricity and gas markets and the integration of a growing share of renewables. Transmission networks can also facilitate the integration of storage and Power-to-X technologies in the market. The incentives for TSOs to invest are highly dependent on the National Regulatory Framework (NRF) in Member States.
