The MEDREG Electricity Working Group (ELE WG) met in Paris on 26 September, kindly hosted by the French Regulator CRE who welcomed 9 participants from 7 members, representing Albania, Egypt, France, Jordan, Italy, Lebanon, Palestine and Turkey.
The discussions mainly focused on the Electricity Market Observatory Report (MEMO), the priority fields that have been identified by the Steering Committee for the ELE WG and the joint training planned with Med-TSO on regulation for infrastructure investments next December.
Members addressed the projects of common interests and identified several prerequisites for a meaningful methodology such as, inter alia, needs and problems identification, cost and benefit analysis, added value of the projects, redundancy and complexity of the system, identification of the legal framework and system flexibility.
MEDREG is the Association of Mediterranean Energy Regulators, which brings together 27 regulators from 23 countries, spanning the European Union (EU), the Balkans and North Africa. Mediterranean regulators work together to promote greater compatibility of the regional energy markets and legislation, seeking progressive market integration in the Euro-Mediterranean basin.
MEDREG promotes a transparent, stable and compatible regulatory framework in the Mediterranean Region fostering infrastructure investments, consumer protection, and enhanced energy cooperation. Based on a bottom-up approach, MEDREG acts as a collaborative platform for regulators from the Northern and the Southern shore of the Mediterranean to exchange technical knowledge and good practices while supporting each other to reinforce their regulatory capacity.
The Association is co-funded by the European Union and benefits from the financial contribution of its members.
