In a groundbreaking move towards a cleaner and more sustainable future, the Ministry for the Environment, Energy, and Enterprise has unveiled a visionary policy document that could reshape Malta’s energy landscape. The National Policy for the Deployment of Offshore Renewable Energy is now open for public consultation, inviting citizens and stakeholders to join the discourse that promises to propel Malta into a new era of energy innovation.

At the heart of this ambitious initiative is the recognition of Malta’s untapped potential lying beyond its territorial waters and within its Exclusive Economic Zone. Energy Minister Miriam Dalli, emphasised that the policy’s technology-neutral approach paves the way for the implementation of offshore renewable projects, with a primary focus on wind and solar energy. This approach harmonises the country’s energy vision with the global transition towards sustainable energy sources.

The Offshore Renewable Energy Policy harnesses the immense potential of this vast expanse, offering the promise of affordable and clean energy that transcends conventional boundaries. Beyond its environmental benefits, the policy also presents a golden opportunity for sustainable economic growth.

The policy’s comprehensive framework aligns itself with Malta’s overarching goals: promoting renewable energy investments, guiding potential investors towards effective technologies, encouraging research and development, and safeguarding energy security.

The “Messi mania” continues to sweep the nation, setting new records and turning the sports world on its head. Todays’s highly anticipated clash between Inter Miami and Los Angeles FC is making headlines for all the right reasons.

According to TickPick, an online marketplace, ticket prices for this game have shattered previous records, making it the most expensive MLS match ever. The average ticket price stands at a staggering $690, marking a jaw-dropping 527% increase from the pre-Messi era when an MLS ticket cost a mere $110. And that’s not all—just days away from the game, the cheapest ticket to witness Messi in action comes with a hefty price tag of $785.

Leo Messi’s impact on the ticket market has been nothing short of extraordinary. With Messi’s arrival, ticket prices have soared to new heights, giving fans the opportunity to witness greatness live on the field. The euphoria surrounding Messi’s regular season debut led to ticket prices skyrocketing by almost 1,000% for a New York Red Bulls game. His arrival has created a wave of excitement that has redefined the football experience in the MLS.

The surge in demand, coupled with the presence of one of the world’s greatest athletes, has contributed to this unprecedented phenomenon. Los Angeles FC’s reputation as one of the most popular MLS teams further fuels the demand, making tickets for their matches highly sought-after. While the market may stabilise, the possibility of an upward shift in prices cannot be ruled out due to the ongoing heightened demand.

The Messi mania extends far beyond the pitch. Apple’s football streaming package subscriptions have surged since Messi’s arrival in July, showcasing his global appeal. Adidas, the sportswear giant, has witnessed an overwhelming demand for Messi’s jerseys, leading to an order backlog that stretches into October. The phenomenon has transcended borders, making Messi’s presence a game-changer not only for MLS but also for the world of sports.

Soccer.com revealed that the top eight best-selling jerseys on their platform are Messi-related, including his iconic Argentina kit and the Inter Miami shirt. The Inter Miami jersey has become the top-selling MLS club kit across nearly all US states. The Messi effect has turned the spotlight on jerseys, uniting fans from coast to coast in their admiration for the football legend.
