RENEWABLE SOURCES OF ENERGY

In order to contribute to the promotion of the use of renewable sources of energy, PAP/RAC has established contact with the Stockholm Environment Institute - Boston Centre (SEI-B) which was applying the Long-Term Energy-Environment Alternatives Planning (LEAP) and CIEMAT (Centro de Investigaciones Energeticas Medioambientales y Technologicas) from Madrid, which hosted a training programme on practical application of renewable sources of energy in the Mediterranean region. Within this programme, a number of training courses was organised and a set of training documents was prepared in both English and French languages.

With regard to the fact that the Mediterranean region lacks energy sources, and that the traditional sources of energy are often major sources of pollution, the Contracting Parties to the Barcelona Convention defined the promotion of renewable, clean sources of energy as one of PAP/RAC tasks. After a number of seminars on the subject, training courses were organised, in co-operation with the "Centro de Investigaciones Energeticas y Tecnologicas - CIEMAT" of Madrid, dealing with various aspects of application of renewable energy sources (sun and wind). For that purpose, appropriate training documents have been prepared, divided in 5 volumes, as listed below. The titles of the documents are self explanatory:
