In the context of the Mediterranean Solar Plan, MEDGRID is interested in evaluating the feasibility of transporting large amounts of electrical energy from countries in North Africa to Europe. These trans-Mediterranean electricity exchanges have three potential complementary corridors, the Western on through the Iberian Peninsula, the Center one through Italy and the Eastern through Turkey. This project analyzes, using tools developed at IIT within their research projects, the network reinforcements required for the Western corridor to increase the South to North capacity of transmission in several GW. The initial reference network corresponds to the result of the TYNDP 2020.
