The President of the ISC " MPE " presented through a speech the content of which is hereinafter: the objectives of the ISC " MPE ", its work plan adopted in December 22nd, 2014 and the forecasted results.

I. Presentation of the ISC and its strategic objectives:

The Intersectoral Commission ISC « MPE » along with the other 10 ISCs, has been installed the 06th November 201-# This ISC is within the action plan of the government 2015-2019 for the implementation of the programme of the President of the Republic who kept a number of actions linked to energy through an effort to made in matter of exploitation of new sources of energy.

The strategic axes of this five years plan are as following :

Production of renewable electricity
impleminting a new energy vector : hydrogen.
Master domestic energy consumption.

The final objective of the ISC is the production of valuable actions coming from research projects.

To face this action plan, the ISC « MPE » organized many meetings :

1) The first meeting of the 22nd December 2014 at the headquarter of the DGRSDT was about the adoption of a new internal regulation, the adoption of a road map for the ISC « MPE ». From this approach, a new programme has been proposed by the ISC and is on 05 NRP :
a. Exploration, exploitation and valuation of raw materials; 
b. Industrial technologies and their applications; 
c. Nuclear energy and techniques; 
d. Renewable energy ; 
e. Conventional and non-conventional hydrocarbons.

2) The second meeting of the 02nd February 2015 at the headquarter of the DGRSDT was about identifying and programming thematic workshops. The priority was given to the workshop on conventional and non-conventional hydrocarbons. It is scheduled and organized the 26th and 27th May at the Center for Welding and Control in Algiers.

3) The third meeting of the 08th April 2015 at the headquarter of the DGRSDT provided a better understanding of the workshop basing on documents provided by the representative of the Ministry of Energy, define ministries and experts to invite : Ministry of Higehr Education and Scientific Research, Ministry of Energy, Ministry of Industry and Mines, Ministry of Defense, Ministry of Land Planning and Environment.

1) Presentation, by the General Director of teh DGRSDT, os the shape of the new five years law on scientific research and technological development through the typology of actions of research and the priority is as following :
a. Research actions type 1 « Multisectoral » : are research actions proposed into national call for tenders for reserach projects sellected by scientific councils of bodies in charge of conducting the national programmes for research and agreeed by the intersectoral comissions for programming, coordinating and promoting. These projects must respond to the intersoctoral issue, as meant by the national programmes for research.
b. Research actions type 2 « sectoral » : are research actions proposed within the national call for tenders for research projects and agreed by the sectoral permanent committee.
c. Research actions type 3 « body » : are research actions launched by bodies as an initiator and the pricipal actor.

2) Presentation of the previous NRP assessment on « Renewable energy » by Miss GUERRI, Research Director at CDER AND COORDINATOR OF PREVIOUS Nrp Projects on « Renewable energy » in collaboration with Mr. Aissa MEFDJEKH of DGRSDT. This action aims to gether what has been already done in the field of renewable energy, identify what remains to do, identify points of strength, of weakness and obstacles for a better building of the futur programmes.

3) Presentation, by Professor Noureddine YASSAA, Director of the Renewable Energy Development Center « CDER », of the renewable energy issue in Algeria throughout different actions engaged with socioeconomic partners. This presentation non exhaustive was a base of working to feed discussions and collect propositions from socioeconomic sectors.

4) Finally, with the range of participants from socioeconomic sectors and experts, it is about identifying and set problems of renewable energy : identify needs and barriers.

Three working documents provided for participants, a scoping note for the organization of the thematic workshop No. 02 on renewable energy, the report on the results of the previous NRPs on renewable energy and a file of the Director of CDER prociding the different problems of renewable energy previously discussed with representatives of socioeconomic sectors and serving as a base for work for this workshop.

After the intervening of the Chairman of ISC « MPE », the word was given to the General Director of Scientific Research and Technological Development Professor Hafid AOURAG to chair the opening of works.

The DGRSDT gave some advices to all participants about the handling of the renewable energy issue by focusing on the following parameters : Research ; Development ; Innovation and giving more importance to valuation which is an essential dimension to develop research in Algeria.

To capitalize the experience of previous NRPs on renewable energy, Sir Aïssa MFEDJEKH from DGRSDT presented an assessment of led actions and reached results of teh work driven with Miss GUERRI from CDER. This assessment served as a base for work to identify the new issues of renewable energy getting the inspiration from what is has been previously done to avoid obstacles meet in order to not fill them again.

Finally, Mr MFEDJEKH insisted on the fact that each workshop must point the head issues on the field and try to target the socioeconomic needs of R&D and the barriers : determine strategic and scientific objectives ; identify the concerned bodies and structures ; elaborate a consolidated report. From the conclusions of the workshop, DGRSDT in collaboration with ISC « MPE » will define the strategic objectives for the axis energy which will be enacted through an executive decree. Then will be, settlment of an NRP committee composed of specialists of the field to identify areas, axes and themes ; and to launch a call for proposition by the Thematic Research Agencies.

The president of the comission has then gave the word to Mr Noureddine YASSAA, Director of CDER, who from the experience of his center and his permanent contacts with the socioeconomic sectors working in renewable energy, presented the hot renewable energy issues in Algeria.
