January 2023 Newsletter 

Best wishes to all our readers for 2023. As we plan for the year ahead, CEER launched its 2023 Work Programme, which comprises 20 public work items – four activities and 16 deliverables. In addition to our own reports, CEER will follow closely the output of the European institutions, including the European Commission's recently-released Public Consultation on the electricity market – reform of the EU's electricity market design.

CEER also reflected on energy regulators' priorities from last year and released its What Regulators Stood for in the Second Half of 2022 paper. We are also happy to announce that the date for the webinar on the 7th CEER-ECRB Benchmarking Report on the Quality of Electricity and Gas Supply is confirmed as 2 February 2023. A second webinar will be held a few months later for selected stakeholders to give feedback on the report and for an in-depth Q&A session.

CEER and the Energy Community Regulatory Board (ECRB) are holding a webinar to present the  on the 7th Benchmarking Report on the Quality of Electricity and Gas Supply! 

This publication provides in-depth surveys and analyses of the quality of electricity and gas supply across Europe with associated recommendations for good regulatory practices. The report constitutes an essential tool in the overall supervision of well-functioning energy markets and is of particular importance in a context of exceptionally high prices and challenging times for European energy markets. It compiles data from respondents from CEER Members and Observers and Energy Community Contracting Parties, covering a total of 39 countries. 

The webinar will provide an opportunity to present the report's key findings. There will also be a short time allocated for a clarificatory Q&A session.
