Med-TSO presents the Mediterranean Master plan 2020

Webinars Mediterranean Masterplan 2020

Med-TSO presents the Mediterranean Master plan 2020
20/01/2021

On 19 and 20 January 2021, 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 member of the Association 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 had a common introductive part about the freshly concluded Mediterranean Project 2, then following two different paths.

On 19 January, for the Western Mediterranean region, experts from the TSOs member and from the Secretariat presented the Electricity Scenarios at 2030 and the relevant Interconnection Projects explored at the same time horizon, such as: MoroccoPortugal and Morocco–Spain; AlgeriaTunisiaLibya, Algeria-Spain and Algeria–Italy; Tunisia–Italy.

The following day, the same aspects have been deepened for the Eastern Mediterranean region projects: TurkeyEgypt, Turkey–Israel and Syria–Turkey;  Egypt–Jordan;  Jordan–Syria and  Jordan–Palestine; Greece-Turkey–Bulgaria; Israel–Cyprus–Greece and Egypt–Cyprus–Greece.

All these projects are included in the Masterplan, although with different degrees of maturity, all aiming at reinforcing the interconnection level in  the Mediterranean area. Increased interconnections and reinforced cooperation among the Transmission System Operators, as promoted by Med-TSO, are key for achieving the energy transition in region..

The webinars gave also the opportunity to present the digital version of the Mediterranean Masterplan of the interconnections. This useful tool makes it possible to have a picture of the potential development of interconnections in the Mediterranean region, as proposed by Med-TSO, having a comprehensive view of the fifteen interconnection clusters. Thanks to this digital report, all the data elaborated directly by Med-TSO using supply and demand data collected by the TSOs, and the relevant scenarios are fully navigable in an interactive way.

The realization of this Masterplan and its digital version are a significant step toward Med-TSO’s objective to be a reference body for every technical, market and policy issue related to the Mediterranean electricity system, also proving the feasibility of regional multilateral cooperation.

Med-TSO held a Workshop on Scenarios Building for TEASIMED project

Med-TSO held a Workshop on Scenarios Building for TEASIMED project
13/01/2021

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.

The first day of this workshop was dedicated to draw a general overview on mid- and long-term energy scenarios. Presentations by external experts from ENTSO-E, CGGIA, IRENA and OME were focused on the development of Mediterranean Power System in a wider geographical perspective, including its connections to the North, South and East. Special attention was paid to the role played by energy efficiency, development of Renewable Energy Sources and emerging technologies in defining long-term scenarios in an energy transition perspective, taking into account the Mediterranean region energy integration in a global perspective.

During the second day, the workshop followed a process in two steps, involving Technical Committee members individually (in particular through the collection of members opinion by survey), in sub-groups (to focus on any specific item) and in a full group. The two steps dealt with the review of challenges and improvements to be tackled by Med-TSO scenarios and the selection of drivers to be considered for defining scenarios.

img Mediterranean Project 2 (2018 - 2020)
The Mediterranean Project 1 is a first step in the roadmap towards the integration of the regional power systems. After the good results achieved, in the frame of the Mediterranean Project 1, Med-TSO intends to continue, consolidate and improve the activities carried out so far with a new project: the Mediterranean Project 2. The European Union supports Med-TSO with a new grant contract to develop the action plan of this new project from 2018 to 2020.
