Med-Tso is an intra-Mediterranean association formed by 20 electrical providers unveiling an ambitious project in order to unify the electrical network of the Mediterranean countries.

 

Over than 150 million persons are living on the shores of the Mediterranean, sharing much more than borders or languages, for some of them. Such an observation was underlying the draft of an integration project, characterised by the creation of the Union for The Mediterranean (UpM) in 2008.

Driven by the need to forecast the future’s challenges, the Association of the Mediterranean Transmission System Operators for electricity, operating the High Voltage Transmission Networks of 18 Mediterranean Countries (Med-Tso), is designing the electrical grid of tomorrow.

Supported by the European Union (EU), this international collective plans to enhance 14 projects for a global investment of 16 billion euros, for the construction of 2,200 km of new lines and 840 km of lines reconductoring, to connect over the next few years countries overlooking the Mediterranean in one sustainable electrical network able to provide energy to some 500 million consumers.

the Project started in 2015 and has pursued the main objective to promote the progressive integration of electricity Power system of the two Mediterranean shores. It is also expected to foster a concrete cooperation in terms sustainable a harmonized energy systems.
