The EU GCC Clean Energy Network II (CENII project)
In December 2015, the European Union launched the “EU GCC Clean Energy Network II” (CENII) project.
The project duration is three years.
The overall objective of the project is to enhance EU-GCC energy relations by developing new appropriate structures and instruments and by maintaining existing ones for practical cooperation activities of mutual interest in the area of clean energy. Hence, building on the achievements of the EU-GCC Clean Energy Network since 2010, the project is necessary to further the cooperation opportunities in the energy sector.
The CENII will support the operation of the Network working groups aiming to examine opportunities and further cooperation in the areas of:
1) Renewable Energy Sources;
2) Energy Efficiency & Demand Side Management;
3) Clean Natural Gas & related Clean Technologies;
4) Electricity Interconnections & Market Integration;
5) Carbon Capture & Storage.
Climate change aspects will be considered across all 5 working groups.
