To validate the areas of work and activities that will be carried out in the frame of the four thematic groups during the pilot phase of the network (2019-2020) and that will focus on: (a) public lighting; (b) the energy efficiency of public buildings; (c) diversification of energy sources; and (d) sustainable mobility and transport.

2. To train the members of each group in setting up energy projects; the training session is the first of 4 «managerial» training modules for municipal project leaders.

On the eve of the technical meeting of the network, on Wednesday 3rd July, a site visit was organized in the photovoltaic system of Nabeul and the modernized section of public street lighting, implemented under SUDEP programme of the EU.
