Med-TSO Executive Board meeting 25 February 2021
26/02/2021

On 25 February Med-TSO held, in videoconference, the Executive Board meeting, chaired by the President Chaher Boulakhras (Sonelgaz, Algeria).

Among different administrative and institutional issues, such as the report on the inception activities of the TEASIMED Project and the presentation of the Balance sheet 2020, an important point of discussion dealt with the strengthening of cooperation with stakeholders.

The Board considered to reinforce the cooperation with ENTSO-E, highlighting how it performs very similar activities to Med-TSO in some of the TSO domains and there they have comparable objectives, despite the different regulatory framework and obligations.

Furthermore, the Board called for a deep cooperation with COMELEC (COmité Maghrébin de l’ELECtricité, ), indicated as a natural partner of Med-TSO for reinforcing the integration of the Maghreb Zone. One of the activities that Med-TSO carried out during the Mediterranean Project 2 was to develop the preliminary actions aiming at implementing an Interconnected Electricity Exchange Zone (IEEZ) in the Maghreb Region. A Maghreb Task Force was set up to prepare a road map for facilitating the integration of the Maghreb zone.

The implementation of the Maghreb Pilot Project cannot be achieved without the concrete collaboration with all the regional stakeholders, on first with COMELEC, also taking profit of the synergies provided by the recent appointment of Mr. Boulakhras as its President.

Med-TSO welcomes the election of Chaher Boulakhras as President of COMELEC (Maghreb Electricity Commission) for the next three years. Mr. Boulakhras, already President of Med-TSO and PDG of Sonelgaz, Algeria, has been elected during yesterday’s Commission Board's meeting, with the participation of members from electricity companies of Libya, Morocco, Tunisia, Mauritania and Algeria.

During the meeting, Mr. Boulakhras expressed constructive suggestions and observations aiming at translating Algeria's objective in strengthening cooperation and strengthening electricity exchanges in the Maghreb market. He stressed on the need to form regional economic blocs, explaining that the energy sector gives a great opportunity to achieve sectoral integration, which would be an essential axis of integration of the entire Maghreb economy. 

The importance of strengthening cooperation and electricity exchanges in the region is also an objective of Med-TSO, which selected the region for a Pilot Project aiming at the application in the region of the Mediterranean Grid Code developed during the Mediterranean Project 2.

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.
