Project Description

Building upon the achievements of the initial phase from 2018 to 2020, the meetMED project embarks on a new phase with meetMED II. This phase is dedicated to enhancing the execution of Energy Efficiency (EE) measures and optimizing the energy mix of participating countries, with a specific focus on the building and appliances sectors. Employing a comprehensive, multi-dimensional strategy, meetMED II operates at both local and regional levels, leveraging a diverse network of partners. By fostering inclusivity and collaboration, it aims to drive forward regional cooperation in pursuit of sustainable energy solutions.


The primary objective of the action is to contribute significantly to enhancing energy security within beneficiary countries while facilitating their transition towards a low-carbon economy. This overarching goal is aimed at fostering more stable, efficient, competitive, and climate-resilient socioeconomic contexts. The specific objectives delineated to achieve this overarching goal are as follows:

  • Accelerate the clean energy transition in the Southern Neighbourhood region through the widespread deployment of renewable energy sources and energy efficiency measures, particularly targeting the building and appliances sectors. This specific objective aims to drive significant progress in transitioning towards clean energy sources, thereby reducing reliance on traditional energy sources and mitigating carbon emissions.
  • Increase public awareness regarding the critical importance of energy-related issues and the challenges associated with them. By fostering greater awareness among both the public and private sectors, this objective seeks to stimulate their active involvement in promoting energy efficiency within the buildings and appliances sectors. This involvement is crucial for driving substantial progress toward achieving energy security and sustainability goals.

Project Outcome

The project outcome entails the progressive harmonization and enforcement of regulations, energy efficiency building codes, Minimum Energy Performance Standards (MEPS), and labelling processes across the Mediterranean region. This facilitates increased investments in energy-efficient buildings and appliances sectors. Market structuring is enhanced through capacity building for professionals and industry stakeholders, supported by the availability of financing instruments. Additionally, targeted awareness-raising campaigns mobilize national stakeholders, local authorities, private sector operators, and civil society, accelerating the transition towards clean energy sources
