Med-TSO, the Association of the Mediterranean Transmission System Operators for electricity, organised an internal workshop in Rome last week.
The workshop focused on the future of Med-TSO, aiming at defining the role of the Association for the next years, and drafting the guidelines for the Action Plan 2020-2025, beyond the conclusion, on May 2020, of the ongoing “Mediterranean Project 2”, financed by the European Union.
The meeting ran along three main tasks: defining strategic role and positioning of the Association, declining strategies into real activities and implementing the Action Plan 2020-2025 (funding, resources and organization).
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.
