Success story: How MEDREG Assisted Israel’s Gas Regulatory Agency in Establishing a Gas Distribution Framework for Residential Use
MEDREG brochure - Israel

This success story tells how the study visit of the Israeli Gas Regulator NGA, organised by MEDREG in 2018 to the Spanish and Turkish energy regulators, enabled NGA to make informed decisions about the processes required to supply gas to domestic consumers in Israel.

The workshops in Madrid and in Ankara brought a lot of internal discussions, and as a result, a few very important decisions were taken such as to invest about €150M in the distribution infrastructure. MEDREG’s support exposed NGA to the mature market of Spain and the newly established and flourishing market of Turkey; the two countries representing the very few that possess a developed natural gas regulation and similar climatic conditions to those of Israel.
