The training sessions “Financial instruments for distributed solar energy technologies” organised by the Italian Ministry for the Environment, Land and Sea (IMELS) and Studiare Sviluppo in collaboration with the Egyptian New and Renewable Energy Authority (NREA) are now going on at Cairo.
“Financial instruments for distributed solar energy technologies” are the last training sessions out of 6 already held in Tunisia, Egypt and Lebanon. Their central aim is strengthening knowledge and capacity building in a target group including economical operators, public administration officers, banks and financial institutes.
The course is structured into two training days, the first one introduces to financial mechanisms: NREA representatives analyse the Egyptian energy context and the MED-DESIRE experts speak about the project, explaining the issue of climate finance, support mechanisms benchmarking and best practices, presenting global figures of renewable energy finance. The second day is more specific, it focuses on climate and renewable energy finance (business model, financing needs, risk assessment, financing structure).
“Financial instruments for distributed solar energy technologies” is part of the MED-DESIRE training sessions promoted by IMELS and Studiare Sviluppo which will take place 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 MED-DESIRE project, to increase energy efficiency and distributed solar energy technology in the Mediterranean Partner Countries.
