ENERGY PATTERNS TOWARDS THE FUTURE

The panels will debate the different routes to make available a sustainable energy in the future: technologies to convert organic and inorganic waste into energy products, new processes and products utilising recovered waste plastics, transforming them into secondary raw materials, decarbonization strategy with the deployment of new technologies aimed at capturing and using carbon emissions, the zero emission sources, such as solar, wind and hybrid systems, the digitalization that can help to create new opportunities for integrated solutions where efficiency and renewable energy work together.

THE TRANSITION PATH IN THE MEDITERRANEAN AREA – INNOVATIVE NETWORK FOR FUTURE ENERGY

The Mediterranean region is at a cross-roads of civilizations and is made up of countries with varied economic, political and cultural profiles. The rapid development of Southern and Eastern Mediterranean countries leads to a significant increase of energy demand which is changing the economic and energy landscape of the Region.
Today almost 80% of the region’s renewable energy supply is in the Northern countries. Of the remaining 20% in the Southern and Eastern countries, 73% refers to Turkey. According to OME, around 3 trillion euros will be needed between 2018 and 2040 to cover all the Mediterranean energy investment needs. Technological innovations and new financing methods are making renewable energy more accessible than ever before.
