A workshop on “Mobilizing the Private Sector for the Energy Transition in Algeria and in the Mediterranean Region” will take place on 21 November 2019 in Algiers, Algeria in the presence of relevant stakeholders of the renewable energy (RE) and energy efficiency (EE) sectors in the Southern and Eastern Mediterranean Countries. The event is co-organized by the French Environment and Energy Management Agency (ADEME) in collaboration with the Regional Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (RCREEE) and the Algerian Agency for Energy Management (APRUE), in the framework of EU-funded meetMED project.
This sub-regional workshop aims at presenting to the Algerian industries’ representatives and key stakeholders from the Maghreb countries the benefits of the creation of an industrial association for EE and RE at national and regional scale. The main findings of a study conducted on the EE and RE markets in the Maghreb and Mashreq regions will be shared with the participants, who will also have the chance to exchange their experiences relative to similar associations in the region. Finally, participants will explore possible modalities for supporting the creation of industrial associations that will serve, then, as a basis for the creation of a well-structured industrial association.
The EU-funded project meetMED – Mitigation Enabling Energy Transition in the Mediterranean Region - fosters the energy transition in the Mediterranean, by contributing to improved security of energy supply, enhanced climate change mitigation actions and the promotion of renewable energy sources and energy efficiency at regional and country levels.
