The 15-year Generation and Transmission Expansion Plans are updated yearly, the latest being the Generation and Transmission Expansion Plan 2016-2030, adopted by MME Resolution 40098.

In this plan, the government considers possible scenarios for the country's energy generation matrix. Based on natural resource endowment, project registration and connection requests.

The plan contemplates a reference scenario building up on the previous Generation and Transmission Expansion Plan (2015-2029). This scenario estimates 1427 MW hydroelectric generation (including 1200 MW from Ituango project), approximately 1456 MW from wind energy projects and 569.2 MW for geothermal, biomass and distributed solar PV generation projects.
