Mediterranean Project, the point after two years since launch

Three technical committees in Rome make the point on the actions to be undertaken and what has been already implemented.

The meetings of the three Technical Committees (TC) of Med-TSO (1.Pianification; 2.Regulation; 3.International electricity exchanges) took place in Rome from 17 to 19 May in the framework of the Mediterranean Project.

During these three days, it has made the point after two years since the beginning of the project and it has been a chance to compare the goals achieved and the next steps to be taken.

TC1 has received the results of market studies and it is going to “translate” them in terms of network analysis. As the Chairman of the Committee, Carlo Sabelli explains, "The Committee is ready to face network studies in the Mediterranean region for 17,850 MW of new interconnection capacity, including 8,200 MW between the north and south coast of the Mediterranean. The kick off meeting of this phase of the project, which will last about 9 months, has been held in Rome and it is going to involve the 20 Med-TSO members in high level technical partnerships".

The TC2, chaired by Juan Francisco Alonso (REE, Spain), has decided how to organize the work teams concerning the next activities of the Committee: Connection Contract; Operation Agreement; Connection & Operation Grid Code. In addition, TC2 has evaluated the opportunity to participate in the next CIGRE Plenary Session, with a presentation illustrating the results in comparison with contract models establishing synergies between the various Mediterranean countries.

By its side, the TC3 has produced a report of results, once completed a first phase of preparation and delivery of questionnaires on the status of transmission networks and the balancing with renewable sources in the different members’ countries. Following the analysis of the results, it is emerged that it is possible to share ancillary services of the grid even with the existing interconnection capacity. "Now we need to establish procedures and roles between the countries," explains Rabah Touileb (Sonelgaz, Algeria) Chairman of the TC3 "considering the related difficulties about the integration of renewables and the differences between the two sides of the Mediterranean". We are confident that, in this, the synergy between the three TCs will be crucial.

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: ...
