Conference: Smart Metering Middle East
Location: Dubai, UAE
Presenter: Francois Meslier
Abstract: Presented by Francois Meslier at Smart Metering Middle East

My presentation will be first of all a status report concerning the mediterranean electrical loop: what have been achieved, what are the presentt difficulties, how can they be solved, what are the next steps?

In a recent part, I shall refer to the Union for the Mediterranean that is a strong impetus of the network developments around the Mediterranean sea. In particular, I’ll present the objectives of the Mediterranean Solar plan, and its necessary consequences on the transmission infrastructures.

It is a strong belief of the electrical world that interconnection of networks can contribute to the interconnection of people, to peace and to development.
