Message from the Secretariat of the UfM Gas Platform

Another step in the energy cooperation between the EU and South and East Mediterranean countries was reached in Rome, on 1 December 2016, at the Union for Mediterranean (UfM) Ministerial Meeting on Energy, when the two-year work programmes of the three UfM Energy Platforms were endorsed.

For the last few years, EU Energy Ministers, Ministers of Southern and Eastern Mediterranean countries, and the European Commission stressed on the importance of regional energy cooperation for ensuring secure, affordable and sustainable energy for the region and beyond.

Since 2015, the UfM Gas Platform, the UfM Regional Electricity Market (REM) Platform and the UfM Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (REEE) Platform were established with the aim to tackle these most significant energy challenges by reinforcing cooperation in the region.

​Launched on 11 June 2015, in Brussels, the objective of the UfM Gas Platform is to enhance the cooperation in the Euro-Med region between all stakeholders of the gas chain, and through a bottom-up approach to improve gas security by identifying barriers or opportunities.

The new website of the UfM Gas Platform is one of the concrete outcomes of the will of all main energy actors in the Mediterranean Region to step up regional cooperation on energy.
