MEDREG-REGULATORS
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.

Mission

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.

Objectives
  • Guiding MEDREG members in the implementation of a common set of principles – the “Good Regulatory Principles” that should characterize the missions, powers, competences and organization of independent energy regulatory authorities in the Mediterranean region 
  • Assisting member countries in the creation of independent energy regulator for electricity and gas in charge of market monitoring, network regulation, tariff setting and regulation of natural monopolies 
  • Assisting member countries in the implementation of national regulatory reforms through a dedicated and tailor-made support and understanding the impact of national decisions in the energy sector at the regional level 
  • Supporting other WGs along the process of improvement of the national legal and regulatory frameworks of Mediterranean countries, taking national specificities into account in order to facilitate the deepening of regional cooperation and energy exchanges
Main Activities
  • Conduct periodical assessments of the current status of regulatory frameworks and institutions, their competencies, resources and expertise
  • Carry out thematic studies on specific topics and, wherever relevant, prepare position papers based on the request of the president
  • Support regulators in the training and exchange of experiences as well as other tools of capacity building
  • Carry out one peer review per year on the regulatory activities of its members
  •  Support the institutional development and consolidation of MEDREG
Initiatives for 2021-22
  • Study on the interlink between the good regulatory principles and the energy transformation challenge: This study will develop a solid governance model by assessing the future characteristics of the energy markets (smart and agile) against the core institutional elements of each regulator, identifying the requirement for quick adaptation and further improvement.
  • 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 Regulatory Outlook and discuss it with interested stakeholders and institutional partners
  • Technical support to members:
    - EMRC (Jordan) Design and implementation of regulation for gas sector 
    - EgyptEra (Egypt) Ex-ante regulatory indicators and definition of market design phases
