TASK FORCE ON UFM ENERGY PLATFORMS

Recognizing the importance of addressing energy challenges, governments of Mediterranean countries and the EU, have decided to work together towards the enhancement of synergies in the fields of renewable energies and energy efficiency, integration of electricity markets and gas in the Mediterranean region. It is in this spirit that the UfM SOM approved the establishment of three UfM high-level Energy Platforms in March 2015:

1.     The UfM Regional Electricity Market Platform (UfM REM Platform) for promoting gradual establishment of regional and sub-regional inter-connected electricity markets.
2.     The UfM Gas Platform (UfM Gas Platform) for reinforcing the security of gas supply and regional gas exchanges.
3.     The UfM Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Platform (UfM REEE Platform) for assisting the deployment of renewable energy and energy efficiency technologies and projects.

The idea of integrating and harmonizing the approaches in the electricity and gas markets, and deployment of renewable energies of different countries lies in the assumption that a common view on regional basis is more effective than fragmented national ones in delivering benefits in terms of more secure, more stable and more affordable energy supply. In particular, the potential for regional electricity trade among UfM countries and sub regions is considerable, given the great complementarity of supply and demand structure across the region.
