Project

Strategic Hubs for the Analysis and Acceleration of the Mediterranean Solar Sector

Objectives

The last decades have witnessed a growing interest in solar energy initiatives in the Mediterranean region, coupled with a growing pressure to ensure an actual shift from traditional energies towards a more efficient energy system. While many successful national and regional projects have been implemented to develop market, policy and technical actions, the transition to solar energy needs to be supported by a comprehensive and unified process at Mediterranean level.

As a response to this challenge, SHAAMS aims to raise public awareness on energy efficiency through the transferability and implementation of good practices in legal, regulatory, economic, organisational issues and new financing mechanisms, to facilitate the take-up of solar technologies in Mediterranean countries.

This project will aim to establish efficiency-proven governance solutions aimed at identifying innovative, transferable and sustainable solar energy strategies, promote a cultural, behavioural and operational change towards the success of solar energy-driven solutions, and facilitate the transfer of solar technologies by implementing shared mechanisms and procedures.
