On 19 and 20 January, Med-TSO held two webinars to present one of the main results of Med-TSO’s Mediterranean Project 2, the Mediterranean Master Plan 2020.
This Masterplan shows the effort of the 21 Mediterranean Transmission System Operators for electricity to provide a quantitative and qualitative analysis of 15 interconnection projects, gathering their views on the development of the grid up to 2030, in terms of infrastructure planning and optimization, market scenarios, grid development and market integration. Indeed, all these activities are key for building integrated and efficient electricity infrastructures, through the shared and optimal use of interconnections.
The webinars gave also the opportunity to present the digital version of the Mediterranean Masterplan of the interconnections.
Med-TSO is the Association of the Mediterranean Transmission System Operators (TSOs) for electricity, operating the High Voltage Transmission Networks of 19 Mediterranean Countries. It was established on 19 April 2012 in Rome as a technical platform that, using multilateral cooperation as a strategy of regional development, could facilitate the integration of the Mediterranean power systems and foster security and socio – economic development in the region. Its 21 members share the primary objective of promoting the creation of a Mediterranean energy market, ensuring its optimal functioning through the definition of common methodologies, rules and practices for optimizing the operation of the existing infrastructures and facilitating the development of new ones.
