meetMED organized an online session tackling “access to finance”

Following the work implemented in first phase of the meetMED (2018-2020), meetMED II is catalyzing regional expertise and knowledge to facilitate dialogue between banks, financial partners, institutions, public and private operators, and improve the visibility of existing funds. Accordingly, the secretariat will be able to propose innovative mechanisms for funding projects in the fields of buildings and appliances and assist project holders to get access to finance with a focus on public buildings, tertiary and industrial sectors.

Under this theme, RCREEE in cooperation with Agence Nationale pour la Maîtrise de l’ Energie (ANME) and Italian National Agency for New Technologies, Energy and Sustainable Economic Development (ENEA) organized an online meeting tackling “Access to Finance” organized an online session on “Access to Finance” on November 2, 2021.

In addition, representatives from the Southern Eastern Mediterranean region presented a number of case studies including Egypt, Jordan, Morocco, Tunisia, Greece, Spain and Italy. Speakers focused mainly on the national context and current financial initiatives in their countries and challenges facing access to finance for energy efficiency in buildings and appliances.
