Context and objectives
The SEMed Private Renewable Energy Framework (SPREF) aimed to break down barriers preventing the development of private renewable energy markets in Morocco, Tunisia, Egypt, Jordan and Lebanon. The framework provided efficient financing mechanisms and technical support for the implementation of renewable energy projects in the region. The SPREF helped countries meet renewable energy targets and avoid CO2 emissions. The project benefitted international and local energy companies; offtakers; and policymakers in Egypt, Jordan, Morocco, Tunisia and Lebanon.
This project was expected to avoid 780,000 tons of CO2 emissions annually.
The SPREF supported the development of renewable energy contributing to the renewable energy targets of each country.
