Med-TSO and ENTSO-E map: more than 400.000 km of power networks in the Euro-Mediterranean
The first joint map of the interconnected electricity transmission networks of the two organisations
Rome February 26th – Med-TSO (the Association of the Mediterranean Transmission System Operators for electricity, operating the High Voltage Transmission Networks of 18 Mediterranean Countries), and ENTSO-E (the European Network of Transmission System Operators) publish the first joint map of their interconnected electricity transmission networks of the two organisations.
The map covers the 300 000 km of grids operated by ENTSO-E members and 400 000 km of grids operated by Med-TSO members (some of it overlapping). It took two years to produce this accurate and exhaustive overview of transmission grids in the Euro-Mediterranean region.
“We are really proud about this result”, commented Angelo Ferrante, Secretary General of Med-TSO. “It is in line with our mission which is about fostering the dialogue in the Mediterranean Region and promoting the development of an integrated Mediterranean Electricity System. This map represents a concrete result in the spirit of our Association that intends to act as a bridge between Europe, Northern Africa and the Middle East”.
“Our cooperation with Med-TSO goes well beyond this Euro-Mediterranean grid map. However, it is a very nice symbol of the work that both organisations have jointly developed. ENTSO-E is working with several other TSO organisations within and outside of Europe. This is very enriching and serves all electricity customers through best practice and information sharing”, added Laurent Schmitt, ENTSO-E Secretary General.
The map can be consulted online on the Med-TSO web site and on the ENTSO-E website, where it can also be ordered and consult an online version of it.
