After 36 months, over 300 participants trained, more than 30 technical assistance field visits and more than 11,000 people reached through social networks, the EU-funded SUDEP South project will present its outcomes, success stories and regional strategy for energy efficiency and renewable energy to the Beirut Energy Forum on 18-20 September.
During the three days of this International Conference, SUDEP South will be hosting a stand showcasing the efforts of its 12 participating municipalities towards becoming smarter and greener cities.
SUDEP South will also actively participate in several sessions at the energy forum, including:
- ‘Il Mare Nostrum: Fostering Euro-Med Cooperation’ where SUDEP South Team Leader Naceur Hammami will present “Cities and Climate Actions: stories From the Field”, outlining the way the project works from policy to practice.
- ‘Shine, Shine Like a Star!’ where SUDEP South expert Ismail Al Hinti will present the project’s success stories through the “Regional Strategy for Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy in Mediterranean Cities”.
- Closing Event of the EU‐funded SUDEP Project in Ardeh on 19 September, Ardeh, one of the four SUDEP South participating municipalities in Lebanon is celebrating its closing event. The outputs and results (up to a 20% reduction of the municipal energy costs) of this EU initiative will be presented to the participating authorities: Lebanese Minister of Energy and Water, EU Delegation and local authorities.
The SUDEP-South project began in early 2015 with 12 cities in 6 countries of the southern Mediterranean. The objective of the SUDEP Programme is to assist local authorities in responding to the sustainable energy challenges and to enable them to implement sustainable energy actions leading to energy savings, energy efficiency and more use of renewable energy sources such as solar energy.
