Sustainable Energy Development

Sustainable Energy Development – a public policy process

The IDE-E approach to renewable energy and energy efficiency deployment is based on the Public Policy Process. This process urges policy decision-makers and analysts to think of sustainable energy development as a continuous process of engagement between a country's government, stakeholders from different sectors, and the population. By doing so, we address the need for comprehensive policies allowing countries to appreciate clean technology investment as an opportunity for sustainable development.


A Public Policy Framework for Territorial Energy Assessments & Planning

The Public Policy Process is based on the IDE-E Public Policy Framework for Sustainable Energy Development (PPF™), which enables governments from developing and emerging economies to assess and plan for their own sustainable energy strategies, based on local priorities and targets. Read more...

A Territorial Approach to Sustainable Energy Deployment

In the context of recent trends towards decentralisation and the increasingly recognised importance of local leaders, IDE-E has designed a Territorial Approach to Sustainable Energy Development, considering the public policy process from a sub-national perspective: the one of regions, states, provinces and municipalities.


Sustainable Energy Planning in MENA Cities

Atelier programmation OUJDAMore specifically, recent dynamics in the Middle East and North African (MENA) Region have led national governments to anticipate and respond actively to the aspirations of local communities and leaders. Countries like Morocco have recognised the importance of allocating decision-making power and resources to sub-national levels (i.e. King Mohamed VI's Advanced Regionalisation Process).


To support governments in designing strategies and action plans to reach nationally set energy and emission targets, by effectively engaging sub-national governments and stakeholders, IDE-E has faciliated the development of a Territorial Approach to Sustainable Energy Planning in MENA Cities. The approach is based on a methodological framework, the MENA Energy Award, inspired by the European Energy Award (eea ®), a municipal energy planning and assessment tool used by over 1000 municipalities in 9 countries of Europe.

Morocco's Territorial Strategy for Sustainable Energy Development

CHEF_LANCEMENTOFFICIEL_20130326The MENA Energy Award First Round 2012-2014 has been launched in Morocco. The Moroccan National Agency for the Development of Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (ADEREE) has mandated IDE-E, supported by the German Cooperation for Development (GIZ), the Swiss Platform for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Promotion in International Cooperation (REPIC) and the French Environment and Energy Management Agency (ADEME), to design and coordinate the implementation of the Agency's Territorial Strategy for Sustainable Energy Development (ADEREE): Jiha Tinou 2020. ADEREE has indeed recognised the MENA Energy Award as the official methodological framework of its new territorial strategy. 



Facilitating Sustainable Energy Finance

Local governments and project owners often lack the financial resources to access clean technology and face the high upfront cost of energy investment. IDE-E supports the role and efforts of public institutions, such as Morocco's National Agency for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Development (ADEREE), to facilitate the development of financial models and deal structuring based on public-private partnerships, and to assist local governments in negotiating agreements with International Finance Institutions (IFIs).
