|This project - also known as Cost-effective Renewable Energy for Rural Areas in the Mediterranean Region was a project funded by the European Commission Research Directorate General and managed by the Observatoire Mediterranean de l'Energie (OME) to look at renewable energy solutions for rural and peri-urban areas in the Mediterranean region.
The French Environment and Energy Management Agency (ADEME) was responsible for several work packages; HELIO was asked to be the
advisor on assessing the impact of renewable energy electrification on
ecodevelopment in rural and peri urban regions.
HELIO was responsible for
developing a framework to evaluate the costs and advantages associated
with the introduction and implementation of renewable energy systems in
the Mediterranean region. A set of indicators were developed and
tested. The indicators used the concept of ecodevelopment as the
reference point, meaning that the following elements must be addressed
