RCREEE is co-organizing The MENA Europe Future Energy Dialogue (MEFED) 2022

June 8 @ 8:00 am - June 9 @ 5:00 pm UTC+0

RCREEE is co-organizing The MENA Europe Future Energy Dialogue (MEFED) 2022, to be held on the 8th and 9th of June on the Dead Sea in Jordan.

Our Executive Director, Dr. Jauad El Kharraz & our Technical Director, Dr. Maged Mahmoud will participate in it & will have the opportunity to share their experiences and ideas on a reliable, affordable, and sustainable energy system.

 

The conference will take place upon the initiative by the Jordanian Ministry of Energy & Mineral Resources #MEMR and the German Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action #BMWK.

 

His Majesty King Abdullah II Ibn Al Hussein of Jordan, H.E. Dr Robert Habeck, Minister for Economic Affairs and Climate Action, Germany, and H.E. Dr Saleh Al-Kharabsheh, Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources, Jordan will open the conference.

 

Upon an initiative by the German Federal Government and the Jordanian Government, the conference aims at building on the Middle East North Africa Renewable Energy Conference (MENAREC) series, whilst broadening the scope and offering new formats and fora for Business-to-Business (B2B) and Business-to-Government (B2G) Dialogues.

 

Through this, the conference continues the conversations that were initiated at the Berlin Energy Transition Dialogue (BETD) and gives highest-level representatives of governments, industry, academia, and civil society the opportunity to share their experiences and ideas for a reliable, affordable, and sustainable energy supply.

 

The conference will be an opportunity to discuss the potential of green hydrogen, energy efficiency, innovation, and renewable energy in the transformation towards greener economies. For many countries, not least in the EU and MENA region, this transition constitutes a profound reformation of their economies. As dramatic as the impact of the global Covid pandemic is, this crisis also offers opportunities for governments to promote more climate-friendly solutions with positive effects on sustainable local value creation and the creation of jobs.

 

 

THE OBJECTIVE OF THE CONEFERENCE IS MAINLY TO deepen the energy cooperation between the MENA region and Europe. The imperative of the Paris Agreement to drastically reduce greenhouse gas emissions opens new geopolitical opportunities in sustainable energy trade and diversification of supply sources. The European Union and its neighbors in the MENA region have the potential to exploit and strengthen their long-standing and multi-faceted energy relationships for their mutual benefit. An increasing interconnection of power systems and the development of value chains for green hydrogen and its derivatives could become an inter-regional endeavor.
