Brussels, Belgium 10 December, 2013 (Thon Hotel EU)
Organised by the EIB, in collaboration with the Secretariat of the Union for the Mediterranean and the Observatoire Méditerranéen de l’Energie, the thirteenth edition of the FEMIP Conferences will bring together 250 participants from Europe and the Mediterranean countries to discuss actively how energy efficiency can improve a country’s overall competitive position and create employment opportunities. It takes place back to back with the Union for the Mediterranean Ministerial meeting on energy the following day.
Energy demand in the Southern and Eastern Mediterranean region is being driven by both economic growth and population increases. At current rates, it could increase by 40% in the next two decades. For Mediterranean Partner Countries, this is a costly and unsustainable prospect. Through strong energy efficiency measures and increased efforts to utilise renewable energy sources, this burden can be diminished, for instance by reducing import dependence and environmental costs. This is consistent with the objectives of the Mediterranean Solar Plan, a priority initiative of the Union for the Mediterranean”
