Training on European rules for cross-border interconnections
5-6 December 2017, Tunis

In the context of our its support to national reforms initiative, MEDREG organized a 1.5 day training on the European rules for cross-border interconnections for the staff of the Tunisian Minister of Energy, Mining and Renewable Energies.

20 participants from the Tunisian Energy Ministry and from the Tunisian Company of Electricity and Gas (STEG) participated with the aim of enhancing their knowledge on the fundamentals and challenges related to the implementation of cross-border interconnections.

Presentations discussed the state of play of interconnection infrastructure in the Mediterranean, with the examples of the Spain-Morocco interconnection and the Italy-Montenegro cable, how cross-border interconnections are operated in Europe and the different investment models for electricity interconnections. Institutions regulating energy in the Euro-Mediterranean region and the European PCIs were also presented.

This training tool place in the context of the discussions that Tunisia and Italy are currently having on an interconnection project which could be a building block of a larger process aiming at connecting North African countries and Europe. The Italian and Tunisian electricity Transmission System Operators (TSOs), Terna and STEG, in agreement with Italian and Tunisian Governments and other European TSOs, are proposing a public line model. They obtained the inclusion of this interconnector among the European projects of common interest (PCI), a status which will facilitate completing the investment process.

More information about the training is available in the Press Release, the Agenda and in the members’ area.
