The FCC-ee is a high-luminosity, high-precision e+e- circular collider, envisioned in a new 80-100 km tunnel in the Geneva area. It is envisaged to operate the collider with centre of mass energies ranging from 90 GeV for Z production to 350 GeV at the t-tbar threshold. With a constant power budget for synchrotron radiation, the FCC-ee RF system must meet the requirements for both the highest possible accelerating voltage and very high beam currents with the same machine, albeit possibly at different stages. Beam-induced higher order mode power will be a major issue for running at the Z pole, and will have a strong impact on the RF system design. Iterations are ongoing on RF scenarios and staging, choice of cavities and cryomodule layout, RF frequency and cryogenic temperature.
