This website is run on 100% renewable energy.
Together we’ll create a resilient future
We hope you are having a nice end of 2022! We have been very busy in the past months with plenty of events and with the development of new material. The Interreg MED Renewable Energy project is coming to an end this week. For that reason, we wanted to take this opportunity to share the latest project outcomes with you.
In this newsletter, you will be able to see the final results and documents which build up on the knowledge acquired during the past six years. In this newsletter, you will find a policy brief that deep dives into the transposition of the EU directives on energy communities as well as our policy recommendations to keep boosting the energy transition in the Mediterranean.
We also recently released our latest video on the achievements of our ETU territorial cases. These groups of municipalities have been working together with our flagship cases to test the ETU tools in new scenarios. Check it out to discover different local realities across the Mediterranean.
Lastly, we don’t want to miss this opportunity to thank you all for your support and interest in making the energy transition a reality in the Mediterranean. We encourage all of you to stay tuned for the next steps of the ETU Initiative!

The local dimension: key to boost the energy transition in the Mediterranean
The Interreg MED Renewable Energy community has been sharing during the past three months the latest results of the project which boost the energy transition in rural and island areas in the Mediterranean. Discover more about our latest events and the ideas which have been highlighted.
ETU Territorial Cases | Results and lessons learnt
Discover our group of cases with unique territorial characteristics⚡️
The ETU Initiative has been working with a set of cases with unique territorial characteristics in Italy and Spain during the past year. These cases have participated in the ETU mainstreaming exercise along with the flagship cases. However, they have tested the ETU tools independently, whilst sharing their experiences. Learn more about them!
Deepen your knowledge about the outcomes and work done by the nine flagship cases and the five assessment cases in the booklet. The booklet also describes the mainstreaming experience sharing metrics and capitalisation impacts.
Take a look at the latest resources in the ETU Toolbox
The ETU Toolbox brings together tools from the first phase of the Renewable Energy project as well as the outcomes of the flagship cases mainstreaming experience, lessons learnt and policy analysis, serving as a manual for municipalities and organisations that aspire to join the energy transition. Take a look👇
This document gathers policy recommendations for energy transition by typology of territories emanating from the knowledge and lessons learnt during the six years of the Interreg MED Renewable Energy community. Read it here!
The policy brief gives an overview of the EU directives on energy communities and their transposition in the national policy framework of Croatia, Greece, Italy, Slovenia and Spain.
Check out the event ‘Towards an innovative integrated transformative action to tackle climate change’ that took place in the Mediterranean Pavilion at COP27 and where Cynthia Echave – project coordinator and senior researcher at EMEA – presented the ETU Initiative.
A new IRENA report shows almost two-thirds of renewable power added in 2021 had lower costs than the cheapest coal-fired options in G20 countries. Renewables are by far the cheapest form of power today.
