Malta and Libya are assessing the feasibility of creating a renewable energy interconnector project. The study comes after the two countries signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) in June this year to explore the possibility for energy interconnections, notably between Malta and its North African counterparts including Libya.
The proposed project calls for the installation of solar panels in Libya to capture renewable energy, which would subsequently be transmitted to Malta and possibly exported to other locations.
As negotiations continue beyond the basic agreement of the MoU, the current focus is on analyzing the project’s viability.
Miriam Dalli, the Minister of Environment and Energy of Malta sees a beneficial contribution to regional stability and sustainable energy progress based on successful energy collaborations with neighboring countries.
As Malta investigates the possibility of building a renewable energy interconnector with Libya, ongoing conversations highlight Malta’s commitment to exploiting sustainable energy sources and strengthening regional diplomatic connections.
