Workshop on the Investment Climate for EE and RE in Selected Mediterranean Countries
Policy and regulatory risks and barriers for the financing of Energy Efficiency (EE) and Renewable Energy Sources (RES) are affecting the investment climate in most of the Mediterranean countries. In order to examine the root causes of this phenomenon, ENEA has led the meetMED activity tasked to investigate and gather updated information on the national economy of Algeria and Palestine, as two representative meetMED target countries. In particular, the research focused on the investment climate in the energy sector, the energy market structure, successful business models and the legislative framework for EE and RES investments.
The collected data have been gathered in two different meetMED Investment Country Reports, aimed at giving a brief and up-to-date picture of the EE and RES markets in Algeria and Palestine.
The workshop presents preliminary meetMED reports on Algeria and Palestine in the presence of the representatives of the public and private sector, financing institutions and banks, experts and researchers, regional and international organizations as well as of the civil society. On the one side, the event will be an opportunity to highlight the current barriers faced by domestic and foreign companies, which want to invest in energy efficiency and/or in renewable energy in these two countries; on the other side, possible solutions to overcome legislative and institutional gaps will be identified.
Organized by the Italian Agency for New Technologies, Energy and Sustainable Economic Development (ENEA), the meetMED Workshop on the Investment Climate for EE and RE in Selected Mediterranean Countries will take place on 04 December 2019 in Rome, Italy. This workshop is back-to-back with the “Rome MED 2019 Mediterranean Dialogues”, organized by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Italian Institute for International Political Studies (ISPI) on 5-7 December 2019.
