Countries in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) are blessed with huge and diversified renewable energy potential. Given the ever-increasing role of renewables in the energy mix of the EU, renewable energy cooperation has been a major pillar of the EU-MENA partnership.

Renewable energy sources (RES) will have to play a predominant role in the EU’s future energy mix in order to ensure a competitive, secure and sustainable energy system. Regional cooperation can be a promising way to bridge the gap between national policies and the Europeanised approach.

The EU's 2030 renewable energy framework presents a great opportunity to boost regional cooperation in the Energy Union to bridge the gap between national energy policies and a Europeanisation of renewables deployment.
