Energy in the Mediterranean Region: the Challenges Ahead

With the Mediterranean regions energy mix being mostly based in fossil fuels and considering that the primary energy demand will increase 70% by 2020, the decision to integrate renewable energy and energy efficient projects into national and regional energy policies is essential.

The three sessions of this one-day conference will take a pragmatic approach and provide practical examples of how to support renewable energy, energy efficiency and energy infrastructure policies and projects.
Administrative obstacles need to be removed, unclear goals need to be defined and support mechanisms need to be rational so that both Mediterranean partner countries and European countries can reap the full benefits of renewable energies expansion in the Mediterranean Region.
Organized by the European Investment Bank .
