ALMEE

ALMEE LogoThe Lebanese Association for Energy Saving & for Environment (ALMEE)
The Lebanese Association for Energy Saving and for Environment is involved in a wide range of activities related to sustainable practices and other "green" issues. Known by its French-language acronym, ALMEE (Association Libanaise pour la Maitrise de l'Energie et pour l'Environnement), the group describes itself as "a non-political & non-profit association" committed to better handling of multiple issues and technologies associated with Energy and Environment, not just in Lebanon but also across the Mediterranean Basin and worldwide.

Mission and Activities
ALMEE's overriding goal is to develop, increase and promote scientific methods and means contributing to better management of energy and related economic policies, including the following:

• Renewable energy sources like solar, wind, biomass, hydraulic, wood, etc.;
• Technical issues designed to improve energy efficiency, such as insulation, glazing, and the latest heating and air-conditioning technologies;
• Techniques like cogeneration that lessen the waste associated with power generation and industrial processes.

For more than 2 decades, ALMEE has pursued a philosophy of sustainable and harmonious development for Lebanon and the region, gaining a wealth of experience from cooperation with some of the world's leading organizations.
ALMEE's main goal is building awareness and support for better management – and to keep the business community apprised of the tremendous growth potential exhibited by this new and exciting sector.

ALMEE worked on developing proposed mechanisms for green house gases emissions in several projects. ALMEE is involved as well in the ozone depleting issues since 1992
