Two Regional Workshops for Med-TSO’s Technical Committe Economic Studies and Scenarios

Two Regional Workshops for Med-TSO’s Technical Committe Economic Studies and Scenarios
02/12/2021

Med-TSO’s Technical Committee Economic Studies and Scenarios held two regional workshops this week. These events shared a hybrid format with people meeting both remotely and physically, for the first time after almost two years, and were celebrated in two different locations.

Last Tuesday November 30th, the first workshop took place in Tunis in representation of the Western Region (Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, Portugal, Spain, France, Italy). Today December 2nd, a workshop was hosted in Istanbul for the Eastern Region (Egypt, Jordan, Palestine, Turkey, Cyprus, Greece, Croatia, Montenegro).

At the end of the workshops, the experts controlled the simulation run, which was executed through a specific software. By the end of this first round of activities, the following objectives were achieved:

  • Supervision of the assumptions for the remaining countries.
  • Examination of all the annual and synthetic indicators. These indicators include variables such as generation, demand, exchanges, marginal prices, flexibility, equivalent full time duration and CO2.
  • Analysis of the Power Systems’ performance undertaken in seasonal, daily and hourly time steps through a specific software.

Following these two regional workshops, the data obtained and the necessary modelling modifications will be updated for the final ruound of studies. Ultimately, the goal of both sessions furthers the primary objective of the Technical Committee Economic Studies and Scenarios in the frame of Teasimed project, such as sharing a common vision of the future of the Power Systems in the Mediterranean area building mid and long-term scenarios for electricity.

Med-TSO 23rd General Assembly

Med-TSO 23rd General Assembly
26/11/2021

On 25 November 2021, Med-TSO, the Association of Mediterranean Transmission System Operators, held its 23rd General Assembly in an online format. The event was dedicated to reviewing the progress achieved with Med-TSO’s ambitious goals, including the different cooperation agreements and the TEASIMED project, which is now set to enter its second year of development.

The President of Med-TSO, Chaher Boulakhras, opened his intervention updating on the status of the collaboration with COMELEC, the Comité Maghrébin de l'Electricité, of which he is President too, and on role the two Associations can play in setting up an Interconnected Electricity Exchange Zone (IEEZ) in the Maghreb Region, one of the most important objectives of TEASIMED.

Mr Boulakhras addressed that “the collaboration across all the regional actors is essential to secure the success of this operation”. In that sense, he explained that the procedures to consolidate the Maghreb Pilot Project will be conducted by the members of the Commission des Interconnexions Maghrébines of COMELEC in coordination with experts from Med-TSO “for creating the best conditions possible to exploit the synergies between the two organizations”.

Following the commencement of the meeting, given the end of the mandate of Mr Albertino Meneses (REN, Portugal) and Mr Serhat Metin (TEIAS, Turkey) on 27 November, the members of the General Assebly re-appointed Mr Meneses and Mr Metin as Vice-Presidents of Med-TSO for a further 3-year mandate, until November 24th, 2024.

The General Assembly gave also the opportunity to the Members for reviewing the status of some of the most mature interconnection projects in the Mediterranean region. Interconnections play a vital role in Med-TSO’s ultimate goal of promoting the creation of a Mediterranean energy market.

Notwithstanding the impact of the global pandemic, still affecting Med-TSO’s agenda, the participants to the General Assembly welcomed the successful development of TEASIMED activities and the capability of the Association to overcome the challenges of these troublesome times.

Secretary General at 41st CIGRE Symposium Opening Ceremony
23/11/2021

Secretary General of Med-TSO Angelo Ferrante intervened in the opening ceremony of the 41st CIGRE Symposium “Reshaping the Electric Power System Infrastructure, held today in Ljubljana, Slovenia.

In his speech, he highlighted how, for achieving an effective Energy transition and a sustainable growth in the region, the Mediterranean energy system must undergo a fundamental restructuring and reshaping to provide the necessary level of decarbonization, implying a substantial increase of investments in grids and renewable electricity generation.

He also illustrated as Med-TSO is already working in this direction, both promoting the development of the grids and the setting of common ground rules, and also trying to obtain the support of regional institutions and stakeholders to overcome institutional and financial barriers.

The symposium is focusing on the future transformation of the electricity sector, the new framework of generation, transmission, distribution, and demand side and it is oriented to new methods, technologies, materials and examples related to research of electric power industry equipment and infrastructure, involving generators, power transformers, transmission and distribution equipment, various technologies for cables, overhead lines, substations, protection, automation and testing techniques.

This symposium is held 100 years after the establishment of the international organization of CIGRE and 40 years after the first CIGRE symposium and its proceedings will last until next 24 November.
