The collaboration between the two Shores of the Mediterranean Sea established within WP4, coordinated by ENEA, Italy, aimed at the harmonization of the legislative and regulatory framework on energy efficiency (EE) and renewable energy sources (RES), for contributing to the creation of a common energy market.
The three deliverables elaborated by project partners provide inputs for policy makers and stakeholders to accomplish sustainable energy systems at Mediterranean Regional level.
In particular, the basic elements to elaborate a joint proposal have been highlighted in the following studies, taking into account that developing a sustainable energy system requires enacting wide-ranging public policies: an accurate coordination with industrial and research policies is needed, having awareness of the existing tight connections between energy and environmental policies and economic competitiveness. National energy plans and programmes should help unlock private investment flow, also putting in place innovative financing mechanisms.
Main objective of WP5 - Tools to remove barriers preventing distributed solar technology uptake by local markets is to provide the necessary tools to remove those barriers.
Activities of the WP are: SWOT analysis and barriers; feasibility study for the creation of national/regional certification laboratorie for solar energy technologies, capacity building activities and trainings.
Main objective of WP6 - Innovative financial schemes and market stimulation tools is to elaborate six innovative financial mechanisms and solar ordinances to support the widespread diffusion of distributed solar energy technologies and provide local decision makers and stakeholders with detailed information on their technical and economic feasibility, in order to promote their implementation in the target regions.
