Established in 1921 in Paris, the CIGRE, the International Council of Large Electric Networks (Conseil International des Grands Réseaux Electriques) organizes every two years one of the most important events dealing with power systems, known as the “Paris Session”, taking place this year from 26 to 31 August.

Med-TSO – Mediterranean transmission system operator – participates to the 2018 Paris Session with two papers: “Towards a Common Target Regulatory Framework. Harmonizing Technical Rules for the Mediterranean Power Systems from a TSO perspective” and “The Mediterranean Master Plan Consolidating a Secure and Sustainable Electricity Infrastructure in the Mediterranean Region”, both realized after Med-TSO’s Mediterranean Project, a three-year lasting project supported by the European Union.

For the first time, most of the Mediterranean TSOs have engaged themselves in performing a series of harmonized studies including market simulations and network analysis. The Mediterranean Master Plan depicts 14 clusters of cross border interconnections, totaling more than 18 000 MW of new transfer capacity across the Mediterranean Sea at time horizon 2030.
