A new Euro-Mediterranean platform for cooperation on renewable energy and energy efficiency has been launched at the COP22 climate summit taking place in Morocco.

It was launched today, November 14, by Miguel Arias Cañete, European Commissioner for Climate Action and Energy, and Ziad Jibril Sabra, Advisor to the Minister and Director at Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources of Jordan, to promote the growth of renewables and energy efficiency measures in a way that fosters socio-economic development and boosts access to secure, affordable, reliable and climate-friendly energy.
