Official presentation of OME Mediterranean Energy Perspectives 2022 in Italy

On 20 March 2023, the OME jointly organized with WEC Italy (the Italian National Committee of the World Energy Council) the official presentation in Italy of the 2022 edition of its flagship publication Mediterranean Energy Perspectives. The event kindly hosted by Edison in Milan, was an opportunity to address, together with high institutional representatives, international organizations and stakeholders from the national and international energy scene, the most urgent issues related to regional energy security and transition goals, aware that today’s actions and choices will shape our common future.

As the current geopolitical crisis is affecting energy markets at the global level, the Mediterranean region finds itself once again at the center of energy dynamics. At the same time, as also confirmed by the recent COP27, the great challenge of climate change remains yet unresolved, and energy transition strategies become more and more important in the agendas of all governments. The last release of the OME MEP series outlines the net zero strategies by 2050 in the region and their implications, considering the prospects for energy demand and supply as well as the necessary investments.
