Energy Infrastructures for Italy and the Mediterranean: Med-TSO contribution to a study realized by Confindustria Energia
During the past months, Med-TSO contributed to draft the study Energy Infrastructures for Italy and the Mediterranean, developed by Confindustria Energia (Italian Energy Industry Association) in cooperation with various stakeholders in the energy sector and published at the end of April.
The research analyses the trend and investment programs in Italy between 2018 and 2030 in primary energy infrastructures and the potential of the Italian system for the development of energy projects in the context of enhanced cooperation in the Mediterranean region. The assessments shown in the study were carried out between October 2019 and March 2020, when Italy began its battle against the COVID-19 pandemic, whose consequences on the energy sector are premature to evaluate and which will be integrated as soon as the health and economic situation will have stabilized.
The indications provided represent an objective reference for the next decade, while keeping in mind the possible slowdowns in the implementation of some projects in the short term.
Med-TSO’s knowledge and experience have contributed, together with the Observatoire Méditerranéen de l’Energie (OME) and MedReg, the Association of Mediterranean Energy Regulators, to the drafting of chapter 5 “Energy cooperation in the Mediterranean”, which provides key elements to stimulate a wider reflection on the importance of Euro-Mediterranean cooperation and on the role that Italy can play on the 2030-2040 horizon. The chapter is enriched with insights on the main energy infrastructures of the region, as well as some regulatory aspects of the energy market.
