TenneT has asked The Brattle Group to study the existing Dutch policy for connecting and disconnecting generators, and to develop proposals for reform. TenneT has received a high number of requests for new connections, and the new demand currently exceeds network capacity. The unusual level of connection requests and the subsequent congestion has prompted Members of the Dutch Parliament to express concerns to the Ministry of Economic Affairs. The Ministry of Economic Affairs has recently responded to the Parliament, and NMa/DTe has written to TenneT requesting a review of the connection policy, which would consider the possibility of strategic behaviour by generators, the desire to promote a favourable investment climate, and the goals of transparency, non-discrimination and confidentiality.
