Black Sea countries vow to strengthen cooperation on renewable energy

The first Black Sea Renewable Energy Forum concluded with participating nations vowing to strengthen their cooperation in the renewable energy sector and to work to make it easier to transpose successful business models across borders while also establishing relevant legal frameworks for collaboration.

During the 8-10 November forum, participants attended sessions on the renewable energy policy, the relevant legislation, as well as presentations on solar, hydro, wind and geothermal energy. Conferees also had the opportunity to visit an exhibition of equipment and technologies in the renewable energy field.

The forum was organized by the Alliance of Employers Confederations in Romania (ACPR), the Energy Employers Federation (FPEN), the SunE Employers Association in the field of new energy sources, and the Prahova (Romania) County Council, with support from the Romanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Business Environment.

It signalled the start of several initiatives involving both the business and academic communities. These included the establishment of a Black Sea Regional Centre and a network of Centres of Excellence on Renewable Energy.

The meeting also established the structure of a green alliance – this one between academics and start-up entrepreneurs – facilitated by the Black Sea Economic Cooperation Business Council and the PROMITHEAS network on energy and climate change policy.

Those participating in the inaugural forum included representatives of Black Sea nation governments; academics from Turkey, Bulgaria and Greece; NGOS active in the renewable energy field, as well as companies active in the renewable energy field in Austria, Germany, Italy and Romania.

In addition to the aforementioned activities, the forum also sought to identify both success stories and obstacles to promoting renewable energy sources in the context of climate change, strategic aspects and support mechanisms for the sector, and how best to integrate the various kinds of renewable energies under development into the Black Sea regional energy framework.
