Chapter 14 Electricity exchanges with North Africa at 2030 - The European and the Italian approaches

The present chapter, part of a book reporting current activities and challenges related to Mediterranean energy systems evolution, including MedReg and Energy Community developments, results from a collaboration activity between RSE and EC – JRC. The chapter describes two tightly interrelated approaches, both within a 2030 time horizon for network layout, generation set and system demand evolutions: one from a European perspective and one from a national (Italian) perspective. The former investigates the effect of North African electricity imports on the global European power system (corridor-based approach). The latter, taking account of boundary conditions from the European analysis, performs an in-depth techno-economic investigation of the impact of North-African imports on the Italian grid, highlighting system criticalities in Italy (grid-based approach).
