Abstract: In Europe different trends and issues, mostly related to the electricity industry liberalisation and the growing deployment of variable renewable Energy Sources for Electricity (RES-E), strongly impact the electric power system, and in particular the transmission system. This poses new challenges to the TSOs (Transmission System Operators), whose role becomes more complex. In this frame, transmission expansion planning criteria crucially need to be revised and expanded in order to design flexible, coordinated and secure transmission networks based on modern architectural schemes and including innovative technological solutions. More robust methodologies for transmission planning must be pursued to address the challenges faced by TSOs. The present paper results from the research activities ongoing within the REALISEGRID project, cofunded by the European Commission. This document, after reviewing the major issues of current transmission planning practices in Europe, focuses on the methodology developed within REALISEGRID project to address the cost-benefit analysis of new transmission grid investments in a pan-European perspective. This evaluation, which is a crucial stage of the transmission expansion planning process, also needs to take into account innovative power transmission technologies.
