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.

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.

This past Saturday November 6th, the Observatoire Méditerranéen de l'Energie (OME) and Institut de la Francophonie pour le développement durable (IFDD) hosted a COP26 side event under the title: “Comment la coope´ration re´gionale peut acce´le´rer la transition e´nerge´tique en Me´diterrane´e?”

The event gathered representatives from both private and public associations. Mr. Chaher Boulakhras, President of Med-TSO and OME co-chairperson, opened the event and participated in the round table discussion, together with Roberta Boniotti, Medener Secretary General, Petrit Ahmeti, President of Medreg and Toni Volpe, CEO of Falck Renewables. The debate was moderated by Grammenos Mastrojeni, Senior Deputy Secretary General of UfM.

In his opening speech, Mr. Boulakhras, highlighted that energy transition is becoming more and more urgent to improve the energy security of supply and to reach the goals of mitigation of climate change and its effects on our environment. This can be realised, he stated, only through a strengthened, challenging and brave, regional at first and then planetary, multilateral cooperation.

During the event, Houda Ben Jannet Allal, General Director of OME, presented the main results of OME’s “Mediterranean Energy Perspectives – MEPto2050 (2021 edition)”, stressing the importance of a neighbourhood partnership that will allow Europe to complete its energetic transition by 2050.

The COP26 side-event was a tremendous and enriching opportunity to promote cooperation in the energy sector and enhance the importance of a sustainable transition, which are an integral part of Med-TSO mission and reason of being. In this sense, participating and sharing inputs in events as such gives Med-TSO the opportunity to create ways for contributing to reach the climate-neutral goal and take further steps to fulfil the association’s objectives.
