Underline the urgency of moving forward quickly on the official launch of the Mediterranean Platform for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency  and urge the Union for the Mediterranean's secretariat to assemble a group of energy experts to oversee the harmonization and coordination of the three themed platforms' work;

Invite countries who are members of the Union for the Mediterranean process to contribute to drawing up action plans for each of the three themed platforms, with a view to identifying concrete partnership projects, and to monitoring their progress;

Underline the need for better coordination in regional technical assistance projects to capitalize upon their results and foster the transfer of skills and the dissemination of best practices and to create an environment that will boost investment in energy transition.
