    <description descriptionType="Abstract">&lt;p&gt;This paper describes the main features of the&lt;br&gt;
new European research project FlexPlan. This project aims at&lt;br&gt;
establishing a new grid planning methodology considering the&lt;br&gt;
opportunity to introduce new storage and flexibility resources&lt;br&gt;
in electricity transmission and distribution grids as an&lt;br&gt;
alternative to building new grid elements. FlexPlan will create&lt;br&gt;
a new innovative grid planning tool whose ambition is to go&lt;br&gt;
beyond the state of the art of planning methodologies, by&lt;br&gt;
including the following innovative features: integrated&lt;br&gt;
transmission distribution planning, inclusion of environmental&lt;br&gt;
analysis, probabilistic contingency methodologies replacing the&lt;br&gt;
N-1 criterion as well as optimal planning decision over several&lt;br&gt;
decades. Then, the new tool will be used to analyse six regional&lt;br&gt;
cases covering nearly the whole European continent, aimed at&lt;br&gt;
demonstrating the application of the tool on real scenarios as&lt;br&gt;
well as at casting a view on grid planning in Europe till 2050.&lt;br&gt;
In this way, the FlexPlan project will try to answer the&lt;br&gt;
question of which role flexibility could play and how its usage&lt;br&gt;
can contribute to reduce planning investments yet maintaining&lt;br&gt;
current system security levels. The project will end up&lt;br&gt;
formulating guidelines for regulators and planning offices of&lt;br&gt;
system operators.&lt;/p&gt;</description>
