Creating an energy transition network in the Maghreb

A new project to foster cooperation among cities to promote and facilitate energy transition has been launched by MedCities and other partners.

The REV-ACTE project – Réseau de villes Alliées pour le Climat et la Transition Energétique – has been designed by the IDE-E (Institut pour le développement, l'environnement et l'énergie), MedCities and the Tunisian National Agency for Energy Management (ANME). It builds on the ACTE programme of the ANME, which covers the entire Tunisian territory with the objective of supporting a network of cities in energy planning, project development, preliminary studies, implementation and monitoring.

REV-ACTE will develop the programme in innovative ways, developing networking and horizontal exchange between cities. Its aims are to develop a network of Tunisian cities committed to energy transition, build technical and managerial capacity between municipalities and build a platform for regional exchange. In addition to the organisation of seminars, training and technical exchanges, the project will involve the development of a website and the production of short training videos on the subject of energy transition.

The project is funded by the French Environment and Energy Management Agency and REPIC (Renewable Energy, Energy and Resource Efficiency, Promotion in International Cooperation).
