2nd CEER-MEDREG Workshop

The Council of European Energy Regulators (CEER) and Mediterranean Energy Regulators (MEDREG) held a second joint roundtable in St. Julians, Malta on 19 May 2016.

Through this joint workshop, MEDREG and CEER aimed at exchange information and expertise in order to improve regional integration of energy markets.

The event revolved around four main topics: regulators’ independence and principles that characterize an effective regulatory authority; generation adequacy and the European capacity remuneration mechanisms (CRMs); quality of supply for electricity; and current challenges for the gas market in terms of market prices and security of gas supply.

Representatives from AEEGSI (Italy), BNetzA (Germany), CRE (France), CREG (Algeria), EMRA (Turkey), ERE (Albania), ERSE (Portugal) and HERA (Croatia) contributed to the roundtable by presenting recent regulatory developments. Speakers and participants debated several long-term challenges which regulators are facing, with particular attention to the regulatory competences and role regulators play in the market.
