The energy sector is crucial for both shores of the Mediterranean. As the demand in the Southern shore is expected to increase in the upcoming years due to population growth, secure, sustainable and affordable energy will increasingly represent a tool for development and cooperation. In this regard, states that border the Mediterranean have a unique opportunity to work together to develop energy networks, integrating their markets and improving energy efficiency. Cooperation on energy can unfold the region’s potential in bringing tangible economic benefits and mitigating long-lasting regional geopolitical tensions and conflicts. ISPI and the Italian Member Committee of the World Energy Council (WEC Italy), in cooperation with the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, during the World Energy Week (WEW), promote in Milan next October 10th the Towards MED “Energy as a bridge through the Mediterranean region” aiming at discussing an applicable strategic vision for the future of the Euro-Mediterranean energy relationship.
