Other UfM Platforms
Launched on 12 October 2015, in Rabat, the UfM Regional Electricity Market Platform (UfM REM Platform) aims at the progressive integration of energy systems and energy markets in the UfM region.
Firstly, the platform will focus on integrating countries on the southern and eastern coasts of the Mediterranean. In the medium to long term, the platform then envisages integrating these markets with the EU countries.
The overall goal is to achieve a regional electricity market in which electricity can be exchanged across borders without physical, technical or regulatory barriers.
Launched on 14 November 2016, at the COP22 climate summit in Marrakesh, the UfM Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Platform (UfM REEE Platform) aims to promote the progressive deployment of renewable energy and energy efficiency measures.
The platform will also identify and implement joint initiatives, and promote the growth of renewables and energy efficiency measures in order to foster socio-economic development, contribute to ensure that all citizens and businesses of the region have access to secure, affordable and reliable modern energy services, as well as to support mitigation and adaptation to climate change in the Euro-Mediterranean region.
