The meetMED project

The Mitigation Enabling Energy Transition in the Mediterranean region (meetMED) project is a two-years EU-funded project, developed by the Mediterranean Association of the National Agencies for Energy Management (MEDENER) and the Regional Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (RCREEE) to support regional cooperation and build technical capacity for energy transition in Southern and Eastern Mediterranean (SEM) countries.

Funded by the European Commission and co-developed by RCREEE and MEDENER, meetMED was launched in May 2018 at the headquarters of the Union for the Mediterranean (UfM) in Barcelona, Spain, for an initial period of two years. The meetMED project aims to accelerate the energy transition in southern and eastern Mediterranean countries and to enhance regional cooperation on energy matters.

The meetMED secretariat is coordinating the implementation of the project, which articulates in four workstreams: 1) assessing EE and RES strategies and policies; 2) advancing vocational training and public awareness; 3) attracting sustainable investments in RES and EE; 4) supporting the UfM Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Platform.
