RGI interviewed 22 system operator senior executives (16 TSOs and 6 DSOs) from 16 different European countries to understand their perspectives on the most pressing topics facing the power sector. We have collected their answers in our publication "European Grid Perspectives".

The transformation of the European power system to one based on renewables is necessary if we are going to halt climate change. This will require a shift in how the electricity grids, the backbone of the power system, are developed and operated. To help understand what this future could look like, RGI collected the personal perspectives of senior managers from European electricity grid operators, discussing topics from technology and regulation, to future roles and responsibilities. RGI did this in order to identify where there is significant consensus and to inform the wider society of the personal perspectives of grid operators. This is core to RGI’s mission to increase transparency, to build coalitions and to jointly show the path to a decarbonised power system.  

From the discussions we identified six common perspectives which are detailed in this report. From these perspectives, we have drawn a set of main findings, these are:
