Mediterranean Project Closing Conference: “Towards the Future Secure and Sustainable Electricity Infrastructure in the Mediterranean Region”

Organized by Med-TSO – Hosted by MEP Simona BONAFÈ, at European Parliament, on 10 April 2018   (h. 9.00 – 12.00)

The conference presents main results and key achievements of the Mediterranean Project, a 3-year lasting project developed by Med-TSO and co-financed by the EC, aiming at the progressive harmonization and strengthening of the electricity markets in the Mediterranean Region.

Med-TSO final rush towards the Mediterranean Project

In view of the closing conference on the 10th of April in Brussels, the Association’s initiatives follow each other with the launch of the network map and the next workshop in the Campus of Terna.

The date of April 10 is approaching in which, during the conference “Towards a future Secure and Sustainable Electricity Infrastructure in the Mediterranean Region”, will be presented in Brussels, at the headquarters of the European Parliament, the results of the Mediterranean Project at the end of the foreseen three years (it is possible register here). A challenge that has seen building, thanks to the work of Med-TSO, a system of dialogue and comparison between the 20 associated TSOs, able to face the commitment to make the networks interoperable in the countries bordering the Mediterranean.

Among the different goals, the first edition of the map of networks of countries associated to Med-TSO has been published in these days. The initiative has been carried out jointly with ENTSO-E. In the map, therefore, it is possible to identify the networks of the associated TSOs and the networks of ENTSO-E, highlighting with a mix of colors the Countries belonging to both realities, and underlining how much the two associations also share the goal of interoperability between systems. The map can be viewed and downloaded freely from the website of Med-TSO. “This initiative” explains the Secretary General of Med-TSO Angelo Ferrante, “represents in concrete the spirit of the association, which wants to propose itself and act as a bridge between Europe, North Africa and Middle East”.

These last days that precede the final conference of the Mediterranean Project, also reserve other initiatives on behalf of the association of Mediterranean TSOs. In the next few days, Terna will be the theater of a workshop to deepen the theme: Planning and Development of the Euro Mediterranean Electricity Reference Grid.

The occasion is part of the dissemination activities of the task force dedicated to sharing skills, foreseen by the Mediterranean Project. A laboratory of experiences that will see the Association increasingly active, a megaphone for highly specialized skills among its members. A project closure rich in initiatives, which sees collecting the fruits of three intense years of work.

Med-TSO and ENTSO-E map: more than 400.000 km of power networks in the Euro-Mediterranean

The first joint map of the interconnected electricity transmission networks of the two organisations

Rome February 26th - Med-TSO (the Association of the Mediterranean Transmission System Operators for electricity, operating the High Voltage Transmission Networks of 18 Mediterranean Countries), and ENTSO-E (the European Network of Transmission System Operators) publish the first joint map of their interconnected electricity transmission networks of the two organisations.

The map covers the 300 000 km of grids operated by ENTSO-E members and 400 000 km of grids operated by Med-TSO members (some of it overlapping). It took two years to produce this accurate and exhaustive overview of transmission grids in the Euro-Mediterranean region.

“We are really proud about this result”, commented Angelo Ferrante, Secretary General of Med-TSO“It is in line with our mission which is about fostering the dialogue in the Mediterranean Region and promoting the development of an integrated Mediterranean Electricity System. This map represents a concrete result in the spirit of our Association that intends to act as a bridge between Europe, Northern Africa and the Middle East”.

Our cooperation with Med-TSO goes well beyond this Euro-Mediterranean grid map. However, it is a very nice symbol of the work that both organisations have jointly developed. ENTSO-E is working with several other TSO organisations within and outside of Europe. This is very enriching and serves all electricity customers through best practice and information sharing”, added Laurent Schmitt, ENTSO-E Secretary General.

The map can be consulted online on the Med-TSO web site  and on the ENTSO-E website, where it can also be ordered and consult an online version of it.

img The Mediterranean Project
Security and Socio – economic Development in the Mediterranean strongly depend on energy and on the possibility to develop an integrated regional energy market. Energy infrastructures are key for achieving this goal, especially for what concerns the development of a reliable, secure and sustainable transmission network, capable to interconnect the countries and allow exchange of electricity and integration of new generation sources, in primis from RES.Based on multilateral cooperation as a strategical approach to regional development for facilitating the integration of the Mediterranean Power Systems, Med-TSO has received a three-year lasting grant from the EU Commission (DG NEAR) to carry out the so called “Mediterranean Project” (Feb 2015 – Jan 2018). The Project aims at the progressive harmonization and strengthening of the electricity markets in the Mediterranean region, following a bottom-up approach and direct involvement of Med-TSO Members, through the following activity lines: ...
