The Agency

MIEMA is a non-profit, public-equivalent body initially set up to promote energy efficiency and the use of renewable energy sources.

It forms part of the European network of IEE Energy Agencies, having been established in 2007 through funding received from the Intelligent Energy Europe (IEE) programme and various Maltese public institutions.


Since its setting up, MIEMA has implemented more than 25 European projects, all related to the environment and sustainable energy, under a range of different programmes. The agency’s technical team includes professionals with different areas of expertise, including engineers, architects and urban planners. The different key experts have a long experience in the management of EU projects, funded under different programmes including Interreg MED, Interreg Europe, Italia-Malta, ENI, Life, Erasmus+ and H2020. MIEMA has developed projects in the fields of green economy, ICT, sustainable practices, and awareness raising to promote a behavioural shift towards energy transition changes.

The agency carried out several studies related to the use of different renewable and innovative energy sources and their application to the national context, including solar, off-shore wind and wave energy as well as the production of biofuel from micro-algae. MIEMA prepared several action plans related to renewable energy sources, energy efficiency in buildings, eco-industrial areas and e-mobility. In 2012 the agency’s management board decided to enlarge the scope of the activities of the agency to address wider environmental and climate change issues. The agency is also in the process of developing higher education courses on environmental management.

Cross-assessment and convergence of energy performance certification and building’s digitalisation

Data on energy performance of buildings are precious for accelerating the EU renovation wave. Considered as a first tool to trigger action, Energy Performance Certification has gained a lot of attention lately, with projects working on making their assessment and use more efficient, developing their data accessibility with intelligence, and exploring convergence among the different national EPC schemes. What can we take out from some of these projects?
