European networks will require €600 billion of investment by 2020. Two thirds of this investment will take place in distribution grids. The DSO share of overall network investments is estimated to grow to almost 75% by 2035, and to 80% by 2050.
DSO investments include building new capacity and refurbishing and replacing existing assets as they reach the end of their technical lifetime. Investments are also driven by a changing distribution system, with a greater role for new loads like electric vehicles, for distributed generation like rooftop solar panels, and for smart meters.
