Project Comments The progressive decarbonisation plan of the national electricity system, as foreseen by the National Energy Strategy, leads to possible critical issues in the future management of the Sardinia network, which is currently characterized by the presence of only two coal-fired power plants. At the same time, the expected increase of the renewable capacity in the market zones South-Italy or Central South Italy (subject to environmental constrains), Sicily and Sardinia could cause some more contingencies which can be addressed by the proposed capacity increase. Therefore a new HVDC link connecting the grid of Italy Mainland, Sicily and Sardinia will be planned.
