The Solar Heating Arab Mark and Certification Initiative

The Solar Heating Arab Mark and Certification Initiative

The Solar Heating Arab Mark and Certification Initiative, SHAMCI, is an Arab initiative that issues quality certificates for solar energy systems services and products in the Arab region. The project is a regional, industrial, and systematic framework for policy makers, manufacturers, and consumers.

The project was launched as an initiative by the Regional Center for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (RCREEE) in cooperation with the Arab Industrial Development and Mining Organization (AIDMO). It was also initiated by a request from the Ministerial Arab Council for Electricity in the Arab League.

The project is an inspiration from the European “Solar Keymark,” but SHAMCI is designed to suit the MENA regional conditions and needs.
