The Master Plan

The Mediterranean Master Plan 2020

The Mediterranean Master Plan 2020 (MMP 2020) is the second edition of the Interconnections Development Plan between 21 grid operators in the region, developed by Med-TSO. The time horizon of this plan is 2030.

The MMP2020 defines the feasibility of 15 main interconnection projects (within three corridors), including the reinforcements of the existing grids to accommodate reliable transit flows in the Med-TSO Region and keep the security of operation standards at adequate levels. The main infrastructure investments have been identified in cross border interconnection projects, regardless to their maturity levels, with the specific objective to:

a) increase energy security and reliability;
b) favor greater RES penetration, thus reducing the environmental impact of the electricity generation, by facilitating their integration in the Mediterranean Region, especially encouraging cost-effective RES exchanges both on the North-South and South-South axes;
c) increase the overall system efficiency;
d) generate economies of scale in investments and operations.

Meeting the above-mentioned objectives is a need for the Mediterranean countries, in order to face the challenges that the energy transition (with its high RES penetration) is posing to the TSOs everyday business and long-term planning activities. The MMP2020 is the coordinated answer of the Mediterranean TSOs to these challenges. Enjoy the reading and navigation!
