meetMED and the Union for the Mediterranean join forces to support EE for appliances in the Mediterranean region: a new meetMED report is out!

In December 2019, the meetMED project in coordination with the EU Commission and the UFM secretariat organized in Barcelona a workshop on EE appliances with a focus on air conditioning and lighting technologies, which set up the Working Group on Air Conditioning within the Union for the Mediterranean (UfM) Platform for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency. 23 participants from 16 Mediterranean countries attended the workshop and contributed to the discussion.

This meetMED report on EE for appliances – focus on air conditioning analyzes the results of the country surveys and of the debate held during the workshop . The analysis of possible EE policies focuses on the MEPS and labeling policies as well as on scrapping/replacement programs.

Special attention has been given to air conditioning, as it is one of the appliances with the highest electricity consumption in the Mediterranean region.
