On 20-21 October, 2015 will be held in Hammam Sousse the training sessions “Innovative regulatory instruments for local support to distributed solar technology: Solar Ordinances”, organised by the Italian Ministry for the Environment, Land and Sea (IMELS) and Studiare Sviluppo, in collaboration with the Tunisian National Agency for Energy Conservation (ANME).
The course is structured into two training days: during the first one ANME representatives will introduce to the Tunisian energetic context and MED-DESIRE Project, whereas MED-DESIRE experts will discuss about solar thermal energy technologies and the advantages of introducing solar ordinances in Hammam Sousse; the second day, Mr Marco Calderoni (Politecnico di Milano), will speak about the specific rules of a solar ordinance proposal in the city of Hammam Sousse.
“Innovative regulatory instruments for local support to distributed solar technology: Solar Ordinances” is part of Med-Desire training sessions promoted by IMELS and Studiare Sviluppo in Tunisia, Lebanon and Egypt in collaboration with the Tunisian National Agency for Energy Conservation (ANME), the Lebanese Center for Energy Conservation (LCEC) and the Egyptian New and Renewable Energy Authority (NREA), within the Project MED-DESIRE, to increase energy efficiency and distributed solar energy technology in the Mediterranean Partner Countries.
MED-DESIRE training initiative is set into 6 training courses, two sessions per Country, devoted respectively to financial instruments for distributed solar technology market support and to innovative regulatory instruments for local support to distributed solar technology, namely Solar Ordinances, scheduled from September to November 2015.
The 3 training initiatives on “Solar Ordinances”, held in Tunisia, Egypt and Lebanon, address relevant political bodies and public administrations responsible for energy policy and local development planning in their own Countries and Regions. Trainings will take place in each selected local Administration, with the aim to provide the staff with the necessary skills for implementing solar ordinances. To this purpose, international experiences and best practices will be presented.
