Med-TSO releases the ‘Guidelines and Methodology for Periodic Adequacy Report’ following the goals set forth by Mediterranean Project 2

Aligning with the goals defined in the Mediterranean Project 2 (MP2), Med-TSO released its first deliverables that will work to outline the possible guidelines and frameworks for the Mediterranean Power System adequacy studies (winter and summer periods).

The document defined as ‘Guidelines and Methodology for Periodic Adequacy report’ includes the information required to determine the ability for electricity generation facilities to meet the load demand under requested security margin, in a predefined time period. In this deliverable, basic guidelines are presented, followed by the main methodology principles used to produce the seasonal outlook of the Mediterranean countries that are members of Med-TSO.

Within this task, the activity called “Risk preparedness: Winter Outlook or/and Summer Outlook” consisted of proposing a methodology for analyzing potential risks to system adequacy for each country of the whole Med-TSO area. System adequacy is the possibility for a power system to meet demand and appropriate reserve margin at all times thus guaranteeing the full security of supply.

To this aim, the working group confirmed the relevance to consider the impact on system adequacy based on climate conditions, planned outages, evolution of demand, demand management and variability of the renewable generation. All of these analyses shall be firstly performed at country level, then at a regional level, examining how neighboring countries can contribute to the power balance of a power system under stress. Finally, additional probabilistic analyses could be performed for countries where a system adequacy risk is identified.
The “Economic Studies and Scenarios” Working Group in charge of this guidelines report has the objective of sharing a common vision of the future of the electric market in the Mediterranean area, of building market evolution scenarios and of assessing the benefit of Med-TSO interconnection projects, as explained by its convener, Emmanuel Bue (RTE, France) in this video interview.

Building common rules for power systems in the Mediterranean Region

One of Med-TSO’s ambitious goal in the frame of the Mediterranean Project 2 is to build a set of common rules for all TSOs in the Mediterranean region. In collaboration with its 21 member TSOs in 19 countries throughout the region, the Association has identified 14 themes that will form the basis of the guidelines to harmonise power systems across all member countries that will be published within 2020. A first deliverable has been already finalized and published by the association, with the subject “A Proposal of Common Rules about the provision of system services: Mediterranean Grid Code chapter” We spoke with Mr. Juan Francisco Alonso, former Chairman of Med-TSO Technical Committee “Regulation and Institutions” and Mr. Andrés L. Sainz, REE – Spain, Technical Secretary of the same comm...

On behalf of all the members of the Med-TSO association, President Moncef Harrabi presents his most sincere condolences to the country and its people.

«The strong earthquake that struck Elazig last week has brought great pain to all of us. Our thoughts are with the Turkish people, the families of the victims and all those injured or affected. We are sure our colleagues of TEIAS have not spared any effort in bringing electricity and assistance to all the areas hit by the seism. Our greatest wish is for Turkey to overcome this calamity soon».

The Mediterranean Project 1 is a first step in the roadmap towards the integration of the regional power systems. After the good results achieved, in the frame of the Mediterranean Project 1, Med-TSO intends to continue, consolidate and improve the activities carried out so far with a new project: the Mediterranean Project 2. The European Union supports Med-TSO with a new grant contract to develop the action plan of this new project from 2018 to 2020.
