On Thursday 11 October, in Milan, took place the Italian Energy Day. The event was organized by the World Energy Council in the frame of the World Energy Week, held in Milan from 8 to 11 October, having also Med-TSO among the patrons.

The conference was opened by the welcome speeches of Marco Margheri, Chairman of World Energy Council Italy, and of Moncef Harrabi, President of Med-TSO and Chairman of OME.

The Secretary General of Med-TSO, Angelo Ferrante, participated to the session “Building resilient energy infrastructure within Euro-Mediterranean and African regions”, having as subject the need to facilitate the development of flexible, safe and resilient energy infrastructures in the Euro-Mediterranean and African regions.

Mr. Ferrante highlighted the role of multilateral cooperation in the Mediterranean in facilitating the regional integration of power systems. He presented also the main results of the just completed Mediterranean Project 1, with a special focus on the Common Target Regulatory Framework (with its relevant Implementation Roadmap), as a basis for a future Mediterranean Network Code, and the Mediterranean Master Plan, i.e. the impact assessment at a regional level of 14 new interconnection projects that could increase the interconnection capacity of about 18 000 MW, requiring some 16 BEUR investments.

The World Energy Week was a global event that provided a high-level forum for discussion of the top energy issues. The Week was built around a series of meetings over four days, including, besides the Italian Energy Day, also the World Energy Leaders Summit, the Future Energy Leaders Summit and the Energy Transition Summit.
