Key Mediterranean energy stakeholders come together to boost renewable energy sources and energy efficiency measures across the region

13 April 2016 - Madrid Workshop on "Deploying renewable energy sources and energy efficiency measures in the Mediterranean: State of play and way forward"

On 13 April 2016 Mediterranean Energy Regulators (MEDREG) together with the  Mediterranean Association of the National Agencies for Energy Conservation (MEDENER), the Observatoire Méditerranéen de l’Energie (OME) and the Renewable Energy Solutions for the Mediterranean (RES4MED) brainstormed in Madrid, on how technical stakeholders, particularly regulators, could contribute to the advancement of renewable energy sources (RES) integration in the grids and on energy efficiency (EE) measures adopted in the Mediterranean basin.  
 
The four actors, which are involved in the Union for the Mediterranean (UfM) Euro-Mediterranean Platform on Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (REEE)  are committed to support the objectives of the Platform and discussed the different modalities that could be carried out to financially  sustain  the  RES market.
 
The workshop Deploying renewable energy sources and energy efficiency measures in the Mediterranean: State of play and way forward”, kindly hosted by the Spanish National Commission of Markets and Competition (CNMC),  aimed at bringing together leading perspectives and expertise on RES potential in the Mediterranean region and identify the most promising pathways to develop energy efficiency measures.
 
Mr. Luís Jesús Sanchez de Tembleque, MEDREG RES WG co-Chair, opened the workshop recalling that since the creation of MEDREG, the Spanish regulator has been an active member of MEDREG, as one of the Chairs of the Renewables working group. The RES WG reported on mechanisms to promote renewable and energy efficiency in the Mediterranean Southern shore countries, regulations about distributed generation, net-metering, isolated systems, and drafts a yearly benchmarking on RES-generated electricity and energy efficiency measures. In 2010 the group received the ICER Scholar Award 2010 for a paper on the “Effects of the Introduction of Successful Mechanisms to Promote RES-CHP / Energy Efficiency in non-EU Countries”.
