Towards a sustainable energy transition in the Mediterranean
The Mediterranean region is home to an increasing population with growing energy demands. The UfM hosted in Barcelona this past 29 and 30 January the Annual Meeting of the UfM Energy Platforms, the only existing dialogue forum gathering Euro-Mediterranean countries and stakeholders dealing with electricity markets, renewable energy, energy efficiency and gas.

To date, the UfM has also labelled and supported projects aiming to mobilise €1 billion to promote renewable energy in 6 countries, including the Tafila Wind Farm in Jordan and SPREF (SEMed Private Renewable Energy Framework), promoted by the EBRD. This June, the UfM will organize in Lisbon the 2nd UfM Energy and Climate Business Forum.
