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.
