Energy trends in the Mediterranean region Seminars and Round-table Conferences

Mediterranean countries have to embrace the challenge of balancing the energy needs of their growing populations and economies, with energy security considerations and environmental sustainability commitments, in line with the recent Paris Agreement on climate.

Ifri’s Centre for Energy is hosting a joint roundtable with OME (Observatoire Mediterranéen de l’Énergie) based on OME’s flagship publication, Mediterranean Energy Perspectives 2018 (MEP 2018), which provides an in-depth analysis of the energy sector in the region, a comprehensive overview of its development from past to present, as well as an outlook to 2040 incorporating the latest Paris Agreement targets. The objective is to discuss latest trends in investments and policies, measure progress and challenges ahead in a critical region that represents 7% of the world’s population and experiences strong growth in population and energy demand.


Introduction by Marc-Antoine Eyl-Mazzega – Director, Ifri Centre for Energy

Presentation of the “MEP 2018” report by Houda Allal – General Director of OME, and Lisa Guarrera – Director for Monitoring and Modelling at OME
