In Rome the meeting on the results and challenges of the meetMED II project "Mitigation enabling energy transition in the Mediterranean region"
On 4 and 5 April, the meeting of the European project meetMED II "Mitigation enabling energy transition in the Mediterranean region" was held in Rome, in the Spazio Europa. Located in the centre of Rome, the Spazio Europa is managed by the Office in Italy of the European Parliament and the Representation in Italy of the European Commission, with the aim of promoting knowledge and debate on European issues.
The meeting, organized by ENEA, was attended by representatives of all the organizations of the southern and northern shores of the Mediterranean involved in the project activities, belonging to RCREEE, the Regional Center for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency, and MEDENER, the Mediterranean Association of National Agencies for Energy management, together with the other European partners of meetMED II .
MEDENER is based in Brussels at the ENEA Representative Office, of which both the Presidency and the General Secretariat are positions held by representatives of the Agency, respectively the Director General Giorgio Graditi and Roberta Boniotti
The meeting was a key opportunity to evaluate the results achieved so far by meetMED II and to define the next steps to be taken. The challenges in terms of energy efficiency and renewable energy are manifold and the countries of the southern shore of the Mediterranean are fully aware of the opportunities that derive from them and that can be seized thanks to the close collaboration between the different actors involved, and the commitment of the network of national energy experts operating in the Mediterranean, REN network, created within the project.
For ENEA, Roberta Boniotti, Anna Amato, Lorenza Daroda, Alessandro Fiorini, Edoardo Pandolfi and Corinna Viola participated, actively involved in activities aimed at supporting the energy transition in the eight target countries (Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Palestine and Tunisia), with a view to the transition to a low carbon economy through a shared and inclusive approach.
