On 12-13 January 2021 Med-TSO held an online workshop on “Scenarios Building for TEASIMED project”, organized by the Technical Committee “Economic Studies and Scenarios”, chaired by Emmanuel Bué (RTE, France).
The scope of this two-day workshop was to launch the process for updating Med-TSO scenarios, to build a robust framework for undertaking studies to develop the grid of the future. The previous set of long-term Med-TSO 2030 Scenarios has been built by this Technical Committee during the previous project, the Mediterranean Project 2 (2018-2020), following a process ensuring a Mediterranean framework and strong coherency within the area and with neighbouring regions.
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.
