The EU Delegation to Egypt held yesterday in Cairo the first Energy Efficiency Governance workshop along with the Ministry of Electricity and Renewable Energy and the Ministry of Petroleum and Mineral Resources. The workshop was organised in the framework of the EU-funded Project of Technical Assistance to Support the Reform of the Energy Sector in Egypt (TARES), implemented under the Energy Sector Policy Support Programme (SPSP).
The workshop brought together major public and private sector players in the energy field to discuss governance solutions for supporting Energy Efficiency (EE) in Egypt. Discussions were related to the main provisions of EE which can unlock opportunities in Egypt. These opportunities include identification of clear responsibilities and functions in the process and steps to be taken by the Government to coordinate among the different players to guarantee aligned governance for EE.  (EU Neighbourhood Info)
