A regional project funded by the European Union. It aims to increase the use of Energy Efficiency measures and Renewable Energy systems in buildings in southern and eastern Mediterranean countries. Apart from policy advice and business development, special emphasis is placed on the support of large building programmes as multipliers of climate friendly and cost-saving technologies and measures.
Welcome to MED-ENEC.com
In order to reduce both energy supply requirements and the ever-growing impact on the environment of inefficient buildings and installations, the MED-ENEC Project on Energy Efficiency in the Construction Sector in the Mediterranean is aiming to boost Energy Efficiency measures (EE) and the use of Renewable Energies (RE) in the construction sector.
For the fifth year in row, MED-ENEC participated in the 5th edition of the Beirut Energy Forum that took place on 17-19 September, 2014 at the Le Royale Hotel, Dbayeh, Lebanon. MED-ENEC contributed to the forum proceedings with 2 presentations on “Measures of the EU to implement Energy Efficiency and Lessons learnt from experience with the EU Renewable Energy Directive” and “Financing Energy Investments in the MENA Region: Prospects, Risks, and Potential”.
Within the framework of the cooperation between the EU funded MED-ENEC Project and the Housing Department of the League of Arab States (LAS), MED-ENEC organized a regional workshop titled “Energy Efficiency Building Code – Enforcement and Evaluation” on 15 September, 2014 at Semiramis Intercontinental Hotel in Cairo, Egypt.
JRC Publishes the Guidebook on How to Develop a Sustainable Energy Action Plan in South Mediterranean Cities
The Joint Research Centre (JRC), the European Commission’s in-house science service, publishes the “Guidebook on How to Develop a Sustainable Energy Action Plan in South Mediterranean Cities”.
Financing of Urban Energy Efficiency and Small-scale Renewable Energy Investments in the Southern and Eastern Mediterranean Region
This study analyses a range of EE and small-scale RE projects in the urban environment, as identified in the MPCs’ own national plans from 2011-12.
Within the framework of the cooperation between the EU funded MED-ENEC Project and the New Urban Communities Authority (NUCA), MED-ENEC organized a technical workshop on 18 August, 2014, in Cairo, titled “Sustainable Energy in New Urban Communities”.
MED-ENEC Discusses the Contribution of SMEs in Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Development in the Arab region during the Arab Forum for RE & EE
MED-ENEC organized a roundtable discussion on “the Way Forward for More Contribution of SMEs in Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Development in the Arab region” during the Arab region during the Arab Forum for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (ARFREE) on 19 June, 2014.
The European Commission has launched a Call for Proposals worth a total of €8.25 million for the regional programme "SUDEP - Sustainable Urban Demonstration Energy Projects”.
The global objective of the call is to enable local authorities in the region to address local sustainable development challenges related to energy.
MED-ENEC will be participating in the SB13 conference and exhibition on 6-7 November, 2013, as partner and exhibitor. The SB13 conference is part of a worldwide network of sustainable building conferences and will report to the global SB14, next year in Barcelona and is organised by the German University in Cairo (GUC, Architecture and Urban Design department), Ain Shams University, Department of Urban Planning and the State Academy of Art and Design, Stuttgart.
