Renewable energy sector facing new EU targets


A Bank of Valletta business client, Alternative Technologies Ltd. together with Mark Scicluna Bartoli from Bank of Valletta's EU Representative Office attended the Intelligent Energy Europe Information event in Brussels which discussed EU policy developments in the renewable and energy efficiency sectors together with possible EU funding opportunities.

 

Ing. Mario Cacica at the event"The event was extremely informative, since it gave an insight to up coming targets which will be implemented across the European Union over the next five years. This means new challenges but also new business opportunities in the field of renewable & energy efficiency technologies," said Ing. Cachia, Alternative Technologies Ltd director.

Alternative Technologies Ltd joined over 500 European stakeholders in the field of renewable energy solutions and energy efficiency solutions in Brussels. The meeting was organised by the European Union (EU) Executive Agency for Competitiveness and Innovation which is responsible for administering the Intelligent Energy Europe (IEE) Programme.

The event gave an overview of the IEE Programme, insights into specific EU policies, the 2013 funding priorities and an overview of ongoing projects in the renewable and energy efficiency sectors.

During the event, Ing. Cachia and Mr Scicluna Bartoli met EU Commission officials to discuss different EU funding proposals and engaged with different players in the renewable and energy efficiency sectors which offered the company the opportunity to establish valuable business contacts.

"The intelligence gathered by Banks of Valletta's Brussels Representative Office is only useful if this can be fully utilised by Maltese business. Acting as the interlocutor between Brussels-based EU funding opportunities and the Maltese business community is one of the office's key objectives," said Mr Scicluna Bartoli.
