Energy Systems: New Challenges in the Mediterranean

Published on Thursday, 17 July 2014

The Enel Foundation Centre of Study has officially opened applications for the 2014 edition of New Challenges for Energy System in the Mediterranean Region, a training course on the current situation and future of energy markets in the Mediterranean region.

Organised in collaboration with the International Energy Agency (IEA), Observatoire Méditerranéen de l'Energie (OME), Renewable Energy Solutions for the Mediterranean (RES4MED) and Venice International University (VIU), the course will be held between 2-6 November at VIU's campus on San Servolo Island.

The course is open to a maximum of 30 participants from non-EU Mediterranean countries who have five years of work experience within ministries, regulatory authorities or energy companies.

The aim of the event is to combine participants' previous experience with knowledge acquired during the course, thereby laying the groundwork to create a common energy policy in the Mediterranean basin.

The lectures will be held (in English) by international experts belonging to organisations such as IEA, OME, RES4MED, MEDREG, and the Enel Foundation Centre of Study. The courses will go alongside tutor-led working sessions that focus on the analysis of case studies and study group activities. The course will end with a roundtable that will feature experts from academia, institutions and the energy industry and will see discussion and analysis of the keys issues from the event: the development of renewable energy sources, connections, energy efficiency, and the cross-region integration of gas markets.

Participation requirements and the current programme are available on the Enel Foundation Centre of Study website.
