meetMED experts on a mission to Algeria to map climate for investments in the EE and RES sectors

On Wednesday 24 and Thursday 25 April 2019 at APRUE Headquarters in Algiers, meetMED experts met with local stakeholders in order to map and discuss Algerian climate for investments in EE and RES sectors .

Mrs. Nadia DJELOUAH, Mr Kamal DALI, and Mrs. Nadia CHIOUKH from APRUE organised the meetings in collaboration with ENEA experts, Mr. Roberto DEL CIELLO and Mrs Lorenza DARODA. APRUE and ENEA are jointly carrying out meetMED activities aimed at mapping climate for investments and market structure in selected countries, in order to mitigate investment risks for predefined RES and EE technologies.

The mission aimed to collect all documents, information, studies and laws related to the safeguard of foreign direct investments (FDIs) in the EE and RES sectors in Algeria. In this framework, meetMED experts had the opportunity to meet with representatives of many Algerian institutions, such as the Ministry of Energy,  the Ministry of Industry and Mines, the Ministry of Environment, the National Agency for the Development of Investment, the National Agency of Climate Change. Furthermore, in the presence of the General Director of APRUE, Mr Mohamed Salah BOUZERIBA,  they discussed and exchanged views with representatives of the largest national public companies in the energy sector – namely, SONATRACH, SONELGAZ and SKTM –  as well as of other Algerian private companies working on Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy – such as SONARIC, ENPEC, OXXO, ELEC El Djazair- and of the Non Governmental Organization, CARE. Finally, meetMED activities and their current progress have been presented to the stakeholders participating in the meetings.

The information collected during the mission and through the questionnaires prepared by ENEA will help draft the meetMED Country Report on Algeria.
