On 11 September 2019, the Association of Mediterranean Energy Regulators (MEDREG) Consumer Working Group (CUS WG) met in Milan to discuss the ongoing drafting of the report on "Regulatory Practices on Handling Technical and Non-Technical Losses".
The report will collect several case studies from MEDREG countries, with the objective of analysing different methods and regulatory practices implemented by MEDREG energy regulators to reduce network losses for the benefit of consumers.
In addition, CUS WG representatives started to define the activities to be carried out in the next few years, with the aim of strengthening the role of Mediterranean energy regulators' in ensuring higher standards of consumers' protection, especially for the most vulnerable ones.
The meeting was kindly hosted by the Italian Energy Regulator ARERA.
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.
