Red Eléctrica's General Manager of Transmission Division, Eva Pagán, and the President of Med-TSO, Victor Baptista, opened the workshop ‘A Common Target Regulatory Framework for the Mediterranean TSOs - Harmonization of Technical Rules’. The objective was to present the results of Med-TSO’s Technical Committee 2, which is led by Red Eléctrica. Med-TSO is the association of the Transmission System Operators (TSOs) of the Mediterranean basin.

Eva Pagán highlighted the Company’s backing for Med-TSO's goals regarding to promote the creation of a transparent Mediterranean electricity system and develop an integrated, secure and sustainable transmission network.

Encompassed within the scheme of the Mediterranean Project, the workshop was structured into three sessions aimed at presenting the results regarding the proposal and road map for a coordinated regulatory approach in the Mediterranean. Several other international initiatives and national implementation projects were also presented, with special attention to European regulations.

The workshop was attended by more than 50 international experts from thirteen countries in the Mediterranean basin, among them the ENTSO-e Secretary-General, Laurent Schmitt, and several representatives of the Mediterranean Energy Regulators Association, MedReg.

The Mediterranean Project is a three-year programme financed by the European Commission; a project aimed at promoting the creation of a regional electricity system by means of coordinated proposals regarding grid development and regulatory harmonization. The fulfilment of the programme will be achieved through the progressive strengthening of the electricity markets in the Mediterranean and increased cross-border electricity exchanges.

Med-TSO is the association of TSOs of the Mediterranean basin, who are responsible for operating the transmission grids of 18 countries. Born in Rome in 2012, it was conceived as a technical platform to facilitate the integration of the electricity systems in the Mediterranean and to promote security and socio-economic development in the region.
