International Cooperation

CEER fosters discussions on the promotion of best-in-class energy regulation with its international counterparts.

Through CEER, Europe’s national regulatory authorities of electricity and gas cooperate and share best practice with fellow regulators outside of Europe, including on issues such as climate change and affordability.

Our collaborative work is driven by regular dialogue and the sharing of our extensive experience to assist regulatory associations worldwide.

CEER is guided by its international strategy which focuses on three strategic objectives:

  • Welcoming and stimulating dialogue: CEER is committed to foster constructive dialogue with international partners, initiating new connections with energy regulators and consolidating established links.
  • Promoting high standards: CEER seeks to promote and uphold the highest standards of regulation for independent regulators across the globe.
  • Contributing to the energy transition: CEER is determined to play an active role in the global energy transition, aligning with the European Union’s external energy engagement.
