First UfM Energy and Climate Business Forum: Releasing Renewable Energy Opportunities in the Euro-Mediterranean Region

The Union for the Mediterranean (UfM) is organising its first Energy and Climate Business Forum in Cairo on 18 October 2017 in Cairo, Egypt. 
The event is organised under the auspices of the Ministry of Electricity and Renewable Energy, and the New and Renewable Energy Authority of Egypt, in cooperation with “Observatoire Méditerranéen de l’Énergie” and World Alliance for Efficient Solutions, and with the financial support from the Government of Sweden.
The first UFM Energy and Climate Forum will bring together representatives of governments, businesses and financial sector to identify cooperation opportunities and mechanisms for an energy transition with a special focus on renewable energy.
In line with the UfM roadmap aiming at “fostering regional cooperation in the energy sector (interconnections, interdependency, efficiency, renewable energy, energy mix)”, and recalling the UfM 2017 Work Program in line with the UfM Strategy for the private sector, the UfM Energy and Climate Business Forum will be a milestone in the promotion of the private sector’s role in the Euro-Mediterranean energy transition.
