Euromed Energy Cooperation & the Mediterranean Solar Plan
A Unique Opportunity for a Fresh Start in a New Era?
This paper examines the conditions and options for a highly effective and coherent Mediterranean Solar Plan (MSP) through domestic energy reforms with the support of the EuroMed energy cooperation. The MSP - the Union for the Mediterranean's (UfM) flagship initiative - has faced the challenge of unfavorable investment conditions in most Southern Mediterranean countries. The MSP objectives to reach 20Gw of solar capacity by 2020 and bring substantial economic and social benefits for those countries are at stake.
