Download document

This second paper in the series "10 Papers for Barcelona 2010" looks at the European Union strategy in terms of energy security and how the EU and the Mediterranean partner countries could benefit from a renewed energy model based on energy efficiency, renewable energy and strengthened Euro-Mediterranean cooperation.  

The global context of economic crisis offersa salient opportunity to stop and reflect on the development models implemented in the Mediterranean partner countries and on the feasibility of the current growth model. In this respect, the authors present a series of policy recommendations with the aim of advancing towards a sustainable energy model in the Mediterranean and improving existing Euro-Mediterranean energy cooperation.
