This meetMED report is part of the EE and RES policies and strategies work package of the project “Mitigation Enabling Energy Transition in the Mediterranean Region” (meetMED) and focuses on the ‘Energy Efficiency in Buildings’ policies implemented in the meetMED target countries: Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Palestine and Tunisia.


The main objective of the report is to provide an overview of the current energy efficiency measures implemented in the building sector of the target countries, with a special focus on energy efficiency building codes. It also identifies the principal challenges encountered in the implementation of the measures and concludes with set of recommendations to encourage and promote the development and implementation of EE measures, but also the enforcement of the already existing policies.


This  report  is  the  result  of  the  collective  work  of  national  experts  of  the  EE  in  Buildings  taskforce  of  the  meetMED  Regional  Expert  Network  (meetMED  REN) composed by experts appointed by the meetMED project partners from governmental  energy  agencies  and  the  Ministries  of  Algeria,  Egypt,  Jordan,  Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Palestine and Tunisia. The meetMED REN experts drafted country papers, which describe the energy efficiency policies adopted in the building sectors of the countries and identify the main barriers regard-ing the implementation and enforcement of EE measures, as well as potential initiatives for regional cooperation.
