The event was the occasion to explain the obtained results of the project Foster in MED, in particular the Guidelines on building integration of photovoltaic in the Mediterranean, drafted by the Technical Scientific Committee of the project. The pilots, currently in their implementation phase, were presented as the core of the project and concrete demonstration of building photovoltaic integration in 5 cities of the Mediterranean:  Alexandria (Egypt), Beirut (Lebanon), Cagliari (Italy), Tunis (Tunisia) and Aqaba (Jordan).

This meeting was also a unique occasion to create networks among Mediterranean companies operating in the solar industry in countries such as Italy, Tunisia and Jordan, and share successful experiences and good practices. As Dr. Alaa Ezz, Secretary General of CEEBA, asserted: “This capitalization event is for sharing experiences within the photovoltaic field and this (FOSTEr in MED) project is here to create a replicable project to eventually extend its way across the country”.

As H.E. Moran, EU Ambassador to Egypt, expressed during the event, the renewable energy is faster growing that fossil and nuclear power”. This clearly highlights the relevance that the solar energy is acquiring in the region, which ASCAME is strongly committed to.
