Today, our Secretary General Angelo Ferrante intervened to the conference "Mediterranean Energy Scenarios Meeting - Building a shared energy vision", organized online by the OME, the Observatoire Méditerranéen de l’Energie (Mediterranean Energy Observatory).

During today’s meeting experts aimed at finalizing the definition of the “ProMED scenario to 2050,” within the Near Zero Carbon framework defined in previous meeting, confronting their expertise and expectations to shape a comprehensive scenario to 2050, including renewables development potential, hydrogen realistic expectations, technology deployments, electrification notably electric vehicles prospects and energy efficiency in all sectors of the economies.

Secretary General presented the Energy Scenarios elaborated in the framework of Med-TSO’s Mediterranean Project 2, namely:

1.National development, based on a low growth of population, energy efficiency and new demand, with a medium growth of Renewable Energy Sources (RES) and of the achievements of greenhouse gases reduction target;
2.Green development, which describes a medium growth of population, energy efficiency and new demand, with a high growth of Renewable Energy Sources (RES) and of the achievements of greenhouse gases reduction target;
3.Mediterranean integration, which depicts a high growth of population, a medium growth of energy efficiency, with a high growth of new demand, of Renewable Energy Sources (RES) and of the achievements of greenhouse gases reduction target;

Thereafter, the Secretary General introduced the activity "Med-TSO E-Highway" that will be developed in the next years in the frame of a new upcoming project, whose objective is to provide a long-term framework (at least until 2040) for the scenarios used for the Med-TSO Master Plan studies in the Mediterranean basin.
This new framework should go beyond the scenarios built previously, and will be widened to include drivers that could affect the electricity sector, especially those likely to experience a rupture by 2040, such as the prolongation of the historical trends (historical high growth rates in electricity demand, economic and demographic development, saturation of usages), new usages and technologies (energy efficiency, electric vehicle/mobility, solar and wind, energy storage), possible connections (power to gas, role of Hydrogen) and the role of the Regulation (national and international energy policies, Paris agreement on climate change).

This meeting was the second of that kind organized by OME, after a first one in December in which were provided insights on the current energy situation in the Mediterranean region, the climate emergencies and foreseen scenarios, also through an interactive round table, where experts from each Mediterranean country confronted expertise from various fields to help define and build a common scenario and a shared vision.
