The TOTEM: sustainable solution for the Mediterranean energy system
The TOTEM will take center stage in two events organized by RES4MED, the Association for the Development of Renewable Energies in the Mediterranean, of which asja is member since its constitution in 2012.
The first event is a training course, titled “Enhancing energy efficiency solutions in the Mediterranean Region”, to be held in Turin from May 16th to 19th with the collaboration of Asja, Iren, Politecnico di Torino and OME (Observatoire Méditeranéen de l’Energie). It is addressed to senior professionals operating in the Mediterranean basin.
The week will begin with the launch of the training course at Politecnico di Torino. Asja’s and Totem Energy’s president Agostino Re Rebaudengo will then propose the TOTEM as a suitable solution for energy-related problems in Mediterranean and Sub-Saharan countries, where many people live off the grid in rural areas. The course will include a visit to a micro-CHP application in a swimming pool.
The second event, to be held on May 19th in Rome, is an international conference titled “Enhancing Investments for Clean Tech Solutions, beyond Mena towards Africa: Challenges And Opportunities”. The aim is to provide a common ground for stakeholders to discuss challenges and opportunities of renewable energy deployment in MENA and Africa. Again, Asja’s and Totem Energy’s president will highlight the potential for TOTEM micro-CHP to contribute to a sustainable and reliable development of the African energy system.
