Training session dedicated to market regulation, renewable energy and energy statistics & Workshop on Med-Impact tool

From 19 to 21 November 2013, for the first time, ENERMED was visiting an OME member: GSE. The session took place at GSE premises in Rome. It dealt with market regulation, renewable energy and energy statistics. A workshop was also organized back to back to this session on MED IMPACT Tool. In addition to GSE and OME representatives, IEA, RTE, MEDREG, ONEE and AMBIENTE ITALIA have also contributed with lectures.

The objectives were to get junior staff of GSE and partners familiarized with the technical, regulatory and political aspects of integrating Mediterranean electricity networks and mechanisms for renewable energy integration; acquaint participants with definitions and procedures most commonly used to collect and process energy data; and get introduced to methodologies to evaluate the viability and profitability of renewable energy projects.

The MED IMPACT Workshop was organized on 21 November in collaboration with GSE and Corrente. The main objective was to present the Med-Impact tool developed in the framework of the Mediterranean Solar Plan with GSE staff and other partners. 

Vivid discussions followed each presentation. Very positive feedback from the Delegates highlighted the usefulness of the information received/exchanged and encouraged repeating this kind of encounters.
