High Level Policy Dialogue to promote the Energy Transition in the Mediterranean region
The High Level Policy Dialogue (HLPD) is a platform on sustainable energy that brings together high-level representatives from international financing institutions, banks, private sector, international and regional organizations and governments.
The HLPD sheds the light on the need for regional cooperation among the above-mentioned stakeholders in North African and Middle Eastern countries, in order to further facilitate sustainable investments in the Renewable Energy (RE) and Energy Efficiency (EE) sectors in the region. Furthermore, it discusses the investment and financial tools in the fields of RE & EE that would foster climate change mitigation, while taking into account the countries’ Nationally Determined Contributions, and benefiting from EU’s experience in these policy domains.
The first working session will be held on 30 January 2019 in Barcelona, Spain.
Focus will be given to identifying new operational business models that could stimulate investments in these sectors.The outcomes of the dialogue will be helping in better formulating a mid to long-term cooperation between the EU and the Southern Mediterranean countries.
