Mr. Thiollière (MEDREG President), Mr. Boutarfa (Med-TSO President) and Mr. Ristori (Director General Energy, EC) sign the Memorandum of Understanding

19 November 2014

Today, the Italian Presidency of the EU and the European Commission jointly hosted the high-level conference "Building a Euro-Mediterranean energy bridge: the strategic importance of Euromed gas and electricity networks in the context of energy security". Relevant public and private stakeholders of the Mediterranean such as regulators, the industry and financial institutions took part in the event.

The conference identified concrete initiatives to support Euro-Mediterranean partners in achieving their energy policy objectives towards a Euro-Mediterranean energy community. Michel Thiollière, President of MEDREG, and Commissioner of the French Regulatory Commission for Energy (CRE), presented the main challenges for sound infrastructure investments in the region. He underlined that the MEDREG Strategy 2020-2030 strongly advocates for the creation of independent regulatory authorities for electricity and gas in all Mediterranean countries to provide an investment-friendly regulatory framework and protect consumers.

The conference was the occasion for MEDREG to sign a Memorandum of Understanding with the Directorate-General for Energy of the European Commission and the Association of Mediterranean Transmission System Operators (Med-TSO) with the aim to establish a Euro-Mediterranean Platform on Regional Electricity Markets.

MEDREG Strategy 2020-2030

The Mediterranean region is currently lacking a harmonized and coordinated legal framework able to foster international energy cooperation. In order to promote the integration of Mediterranean energy markets, the European Commission came up with several proposals, in the perspective of the establishment of an EU-Southern Mediterranean energy community. This long term process will require the active involvement of all the concerned actors (political, economic, and regulatory) to pull and work together in the same direction.
