Med-EcoSuRe fosters the integration of decentralized energy generation in Tunisia
November 10, 2021
MEDREC (Mediterranean Renewable Energy Centre) and ENIT (National Engineering School of Tunis) convened decision makers, academics and private companies from the Mediterranean, as well as initiatives such as Interreg MED Renewable Energy community and SUNREF (Sustainable Use of Natural Resources and Energy Finance) for a workshop on “Micro-Grids as decentralized energy generation and management solutions.”
This workshop was organized within the EU-funded Med-EcoSuRe project to explore the potential of scaling-up a Micro-Grid platform equipped with an Energy Management system and powered by Photovoltaic panels called SMARTNESS (Smart Micro Grid Platform with an Energy Management System) which serves as a platform for: Demonstration, Research, and Training.
Through implementing and scaling-up SMARTNESS platform, Med-EcoSuRe project intends to foster, in collaboration with Mediterranean initiatives and projects, innovative technologies and concepts for the generation and distribution of decentralized electrical energy, in the Mediterranean context and particularly in Tunisia, where the need to integrate such technologies is urgent.
