The HL-LHC parameters assume unexplored regimes for hadron colliders in various aspects of accelerator beam dynamics and technology. This paper reviews the possible alternatives that could potentially improve the HL-LHC baseline performance or lower the risks assumed by the project. The alternatives under consideration range between using flat beams at the IP, compensate the long-range beam-beam encounters with wires and adding new RF cavities with larger or lower frequencies with respect to the existing RF system.
