Symposium brings Jordanian, international experts on sustainable energy discussion

Jordanian and international energy experts Tuesday had a dialogue session on investment opportunities in sustainable energy in the Mediterranean region to strengthen regional cooperation in the field of transition towards sustainable energy and improve energy efficiency.

During their participation in the first-panel discussion held in Amman to discuss ways to invest in sustainable energy in the Mediterranean, the experts discussed issues related to financing and investment in the field of improving energy efficiency.

They discussed topics related to renewable energy in buildings with relevant partners from investors and financiers in Jordan to reach the appropriate mechanisms for financing and investment in the energy field and to provide solutions to the challenges that hinder the development of the energy sector within the national framework.

The seminar was part of the EU-funded “MeetMED” project “Enabling the Transition to Sustainable Energy in the Mediterranean Region” and organised by the National Centre for Energy Research at the Royal Scientific Society in cooperation with the Mediterranean Association of National Energy Management Agencies (MEDENER) and the Regional Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (RCREEE).

More than 40 energy specialists representing specialised institutions interested in energy solutions from Jordan and abroad participated in the symposium.

The holding of this national dialogue in Jordan is among five national meetings that will be organised within the “Forums on Investment in Sustainable Energy.”

Participants in this National Dialogue are set to become members of the first network of national “sustainable energy investment forums” to be established in collaboration with the Royal Scientific Society/National Center for Energy Research and the MeetMED project.

The start of the implementation of the MeetMED II project in its second phase comes after its success in the first phase, MEETMED I, which ran from 2018 to 2020.

The MeetMED II project aims to enhance energy supply security for the beneficiary countries: Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Palestine and Tunisia, while promoting their transition to a low carbon economy.
