MEDREG developed a report that maps current and projected interconnection infrastructures for electricity and gas in the Mediterranean basin, and discussed the challenges to finance them properly in the absence of an harmonized regulatory framework at regional level. This report provides the vision of Mediterranean regulators on the main barriers to efficiently using existing infrastructure and financing new projects.
MEDREG considers that investment issues are at the forefront of Mediterranean energy issues. Mediterranean national energy markets are today at very different degrees of maturity. The presence of independent regulators then becomes pivotal to guarantee that the reform balances the needs of investors, the industry and consumers, and to provide investors with a clear, stable and transparent legal and regulatory framework.
This public consultation on the report ‘Interconnection Infrastructures in the Mediterranean: A Challenging Environment for Investments’ seeks the advice of stakeholders in order to provide an input to the conclusions of the document, which aim at assessing a comprehensive set of actions to revive energy infrastructure investments in the Mediterranean region.
Stakeholders are invited to comment the consultation document. In particular, they can refer to the specific questions listed in the dedicated online questionnaire. Any comments should be received by 18 March 2015.
Following the public consultation period, MEDREG will publish all stakeholders’ responses that are not labelled as confidential. Respondents that wish to keep some aspects confidential should mark the corresponding box in the online questionnaire.
Any questions on the consultation document and the online consultation process may be directed to
