Round Table Meeting

On 4th February 2009, RCREEE convened a Renewable Energy Round table. At the round table, Egyptian and regional experts engaged in a lively discussion on the potentials of the Mediterranean Solar Plan and the regulatory framework to support green electricity production. The round table demonstrated the Center’s strong as a regional policy platform with the capacity to bring experts from the region together in order to discuss topical issues.

In the second session, several RCREEE member states are in the process of discussing and enacting legislative reforms in order to support and enhance the production of electricity from renewable energy sources. The energy law round table shall provide a coordinated platform where relevant experiences can be discussed and shared. It hereby responds to a number of inquiries which have reached RCREEE:

Member states involved in relevant reforms can critically assess and discuss their experiences with peers (evaluation of experiences)

Member states planning relevant legislative measures get access to discussions and experiences in other Member states (transfer of experiences)

All Member states have the opportunity to discuss proposals and experiences with representatives from the private sector who in turn can present expectations to regulators (initiate dialogue with the private sector).

The second session was moderated by Dr. Paolo Frankl, Head of the Energy Unit/ International Energy Agency (IEA).
