HOPS, the Croatian transmission system operator (TSO) has become a member of Med-TSO, the Association of the Mediterranean Transmission System Operators for electricity, sharing the primary goal of creating a Mediterranean energy market.

During the Med-TSO assembly in Brussels last week, Croatia officially become the 19th country-member of the association which has 400,000 kilometers of transmission lines and 544,000 MW of installed power.

The network of 20 operators, members of this association covers an area of over 500 million consumers, according to the HOPS statement.

In February this year, in Zagreb, the HOPS management held a presentation of the Croatian transmission system on the initiative of Angelo Ferrante, Med-TSO Secretary General. The objective was to coordinate the official reception of a Croatian member in the association of the Mediterranean basin countries.

Med-TSO started its work six years ago within the framework of the Mediterranean project. The association’s intention has been to consolidate its position as a platform for multilateral cooperation, in terms of the instrument for the integration and development of transmission system operators in the Mediterranean through the development of interconnections and the integration of renewable energy sources.

The Croatian operator expects active mutual cooperation in the exchange of expertise, experience, and participation in joint projects in order to improve the operational transparency of transmission system operators and facilitate the acceptance of operators’ infrastructure to the general public, the statement reads.

All European Med-TSO members are also represented in the European Network of Transmission System Operators for Electricity (ENTSO-E).
