Diversity is a key strength of energy regulatory associations, stated MEDREG at ERRA’s 16th Energy Investment and Regulation Conference

On 25-26 September 2017, the Energy Regulators Regional Association (ERRA) held its 16th Energy Investment and Regulation Conference in Astana. The conference, hosted by the Committee on Regulation of Natural Monopolies and Protection of Competition under the Ministry of National Economy of Kazakhstan, was attended by 150 delegates from 31 countries and focused on key regulatory issues the energy sector faces in enhancing the energy security of supply while evolving to accommodate production from increasingly diverse energy sources. The conference discussed topics about the current status of the energy sector in Kazakhstan, opportunities in gas markets and competitiveness of LNG, the role of RES in meeting climate change goals and finally the changing energy market and its regulation.

Providing the keynote speech, MEDREG President Alexandre Santos stated that the member organisations of MEDREG provided much diversified experience in regulation. The key strength of these regulatory associations is diversity, highlighted Mr. Santos, adding that Associations are important instruments in addressing such diverse challenges together. MEDREG President further emphasized the importance of creating regulatory frameworks to promote investments, to integrate Renewable Energy Sources (RES) as well as to deal with energy efficiency and incorporate innovation in consumers’ grids.

Among others, participants in the conference included high level energy stakeholders from Kazakhstan, representatives of Associations of energy regulations, national energy regulators and representatives of International Financial Institutions.
