System defence and restoration plans

The electricity supply is of vital importance to society, a prolonged interruption will cause great social damage. The system defence and restoration plan is implemented procedurally under TenneT's direction with the support of other stakeholders through the deployment of the necessary system defence and restoration functionality. Here you find more information and related documents.

The electricity supply is of vital importance to society, a prolonged interruption will cause great social damage. Based on Regulation (EU) 2017/2196 (Network code emergency and restoration) articles 11, 12, 23 and 24, TenneT has to develop and apply a system defence plan and a restoration plan, with the aim to enable a coordinated and adequate system defence and restoration process of the Dutch transmission system and/or system balance after major disruptions from the joint responsibility of the:

  • transmission system operators
  • distribution system operators;
  • transmission connected significant grid users; and
  • providers of system defence, restoration and balancing services.

The system defence and restoration plan is implemented procedurally under TenneT's direction with the support of the aforementioned stakeholders through the deployment of the necessary system defence and restoration functionality at the stakeholders' installations as soon as the operating situation of the system so requires.

On this website, the system defence and restoration plan is made available together with supporting documents. Currently the documents are only available in Dutch.
