The kick-off meeting of the ESMES project took place in Amman, Jordan on Wednesday, 27 November 2019. Co-funded by the European Union (EU) in the framework of ENI CBC Med Program, the acronym “ESMES” stands for “Energy Smart Mediterranean Schools Network”. The project aims at developing energy efficiency measures in public schools with a number of implementations in different countries, including Lebanon. ESMES will focus on the optimization of energy consumption in public schools through innovative, monitoring-based renewable energy and energy efficiency (RE/EE) pilot actions. ESMES will foster cross-border cooperation among different partners from Italy, Spain, Jordan, Tunisia, and Lebanon.
