The total budget of € 28.6 M represents a 42 % increase compared to 2017 (€ 20.2 M).

In 2018, the operational expenditures of the Association reached € 24.9 M for the following activities:

  • 34 % Association member’s services: association governance support, Secretariat administration, strategy and communication;
  • 35 % Legal mandates’ services: network code implementation, TYNDP, R&D activities;
  • 31 % IT legal mandates’ services: data and IT infrastructure (Common Grid Model under the network code implementation, Transparency Platform,
    ENTSO-E Awareness System).

The net result of € +4 M is mainly driven by the delay in rollout of the Common Grid Model.

The € 3.6 M in capital expenditures are mainly related to the Common Grid Model (€ 1.2 M) and Transparency platform (€ 0.7 M).

In 2018, the total yearly average full-time equivalent (FTE) reached 96, which corresponds to an increase of 17.5 FTEs when compared to 2017 and is mainly driven by the CGM programme and adequacy and network code implementation activities. It includes permanent staff, TSOs secondments and outsourced “on site” services (such as the IT support services). This is in addition to the numerous TSO staff members who bring their expertise to the Association via the Assembly, Board, Committees and their subgroups.
