  1. Collection and analysis of the whole set of available data and Information, considering the status of the WAPP context, the national contexts as well as the international best practices.
  • Proposal of the outline of each grid code, aiming at identifying and prioritizing the expected requirements that have to be included in the Regional Transmission Grid Code. Specifically, the codes addressed are the following:
  • Glossary & Definitions
  • General Conditions
  • Connection Code
  • Operation Code
  • Market Code
