MED-ENEC is Energy Ambassador for 2015

During the 6th International Beirut Energy Forum, the EU funded MED-ENEC Project was announced the Energy Ambassador of the year.

Together with two other EU funded projects; CESMED & SISSAF, MED-ENEC had been nominated by Lebanese and regional counterparts for the award. The award was handed to MED-ENEC’s Team Leader after the opening ceremony of the forum by the Head of the League of Arab State’s Energy Department.

The award came as recognition for the EU’s support efforts in Lebanon through MED-ENEC project, particularly in the sustainable energy sector.

MED-ENC has been cooperating with the Lebanese Ministry of Energy and Water over the past 6 years, through its national focal point the Lebanese Center for Energy Conservation (LCEC), to provide technical assistance relevant to promoting energy efficiency and renewable energy through helping to improve policies and framework conditions and develop the related markets.

The 6th International Beirut Energy Forum 2015 was held from September 9th to 11th, 2015 at Le Royal Hotel-Dbayeh, Lebanon under the patronage of H.E. Mr. Arthur Nazarian, Minister of Energy and Water. The forum is one of the most reputable and professional energy events in the Middle East, specifically dedicated to sustainable energy issues and projects, attracting key energy decision makers and professionals from Lebanon, the Arab World, and the international community.

The event is the main yearly platform to discuss all topics related to renewable energy, energy efficiency, and green buildings, and this year, the EU was strongly represented through the participation of 3 EU funded projects; MED-ENEC (Energy Efficiency in the Construction Sector in the Mediterranean), CES-MED (Cleaner Energy Saving Mediterranean Cities), SISSAF (Support Programme for Infrastructure Sector Strategies and Alternative Financing) who joined forces and were present with a common booth. Also, the EU-funded project MED-DESIRE (Mediterranean Development of Support schemes for solar Initiatives and Renewable Energies) was part of the exhibitors.
