Our work is to reinforce the electricity and gas markets, infrastructure and trade. We advocate for strong regulators that can protect consumers and contribute to the energy transition in the Mediterranean.

The INS Working group aims to enhance coordination and cooperation among MEDREG members through the sharing of energy regulators’ competences and knowledge.

To do so, it periodically organises tailor-made activities such as training, workshop and study visits, which are often designed in collaboration with other groups. It also provides peer reviews to members who are willing to comply more closely with the Good Regulatory Principle defined by MEDREG.
Moreover, it is also responsible for holding the dialogue on energy regulation with the European Commission, international institutions and regional organisations.

Initiatives for 2022
  • Model rules against conflict of interest: this report will seek to provide some key points and case studies from energy regulators, that could help Mediterranean regulators develop and implement ways to manage conflicts of interest.
  • Update of the 2020 Regulatory Outlook
  • Workshop on the Regulatory Outlook: a workshop will present the main results emerging from the Regulatory Outlook and discuss them with interested stakeholders and institutional partners.
