Performance Indicators and penalties applicable to generators in case of failure
Security of supply is a high priority topic for National Regulatory Authorities for energy (NRAs); more specifically, the issue of generation availability is a well discussed topic in many countries of the South shore of the Mediterranean region. In those countries, with the objective to deliver sustainable and secure energy, it is clear that security of supply is mainly based on the generation performances and efficient use of existing generation. The report also aims at defining and specifying the role of the regulator with respect to the producers’ performance evaluation as well as sharing best practices in the field of production failures. At national level, the study aims at providing the most appropriate indicators and corresponding standards to MEDREG’s members to evaluate production performance. Meanwhile at regional level, the aim is to enhance data quality by comparing and sharing reliable data for benchmarking.

Twinning Workshop Conclusions
This conclusion document provides an update of the state of play and way forward of the regulatory twinning initiatives in the Mediterranean region which was presented at a workshop held in Milan on 18 October 2016. Currently, there are of the two on-going twinning initiatives taking place in the Mediterranean region on energy regulation: EgyptERA (Egypt), RAE (Greece), AEEGSI (Italy) and CREG (Algeria), CNMC (Spain), E-Control (Austria). This document summarises the components, timeline and benefits for beneficiary country (BC) and suggests the role that MEDREG could play in the future to support its members of the south shore of the Mediterranean in twinning initiatives.

Methodologies used by Regulators to Evaluate Investment Projects and Investment Plans
This report is a complement to the MEDREG project on “Regulation and Investments: Solutions for the Mediterranean Region” and is in line with the MEDREG Strategy 2020-2030 which states that investment conditions in the Mediterranean need to be improved, not only by developing innovative financing instruments but also ensuring the regulatory and economic conditions for investments. The purpose of this report is to analyse what tools can be used by regulatory authorities to evaluate investments carried out by transmission operators. The challenge consists in identifying infrastructure gaps in a way to justify new investments and to assess the added value of new projects proposed by TSOs by checking the relevance of costs and project management. 6 national case studies were examined, where the results revealed that all regulators are somehow involved in the network development process and in the evaluation of investment plans. At the same time the assessment of projects and plans shall be based on a solid expertise regarding the evaluation of methodologies and scenarios used by the TSOs.

Interconnection Infrastructures Report + Appendixes Final
The Association of Mediterranean Energy Regulators (MEDREG) published a report providing the vision of Energy Regulators on the current situation of Infrastructure investment in the Mediterranean region. This document maps current and projected interconnection infrastructures for electricity and gas and discusses the current financing challenges, in the absence of an harmonized regulatory framework at regional level. In a context of strong investment needs one of MEDREG’s key objectives is to advocate in favour of a sound regulatory framework in all 21 member countries. MEDREG works as a facilitator to ensure that all Mediterranean countries establish an independent national regulatory agency both for the electricity and gas sectors. Through this report, MEDREG aimed at encouraging an active debate among governments, international financial institutions (IFIs), Transmission System Operators (TSOs), multilateral organizations, and the academic world. The Association submitted its preliminary results to a public consultation process, which gathered 37 responses from stakeholders that contributed to improve and clarify the final version of the study. MEDREG is confident that this report can represent a meaningful step to tackle and address barriers to energy investments in the Mediterranean region. The main data in support of this report were kindly provided by MEDREG member regulators.

ELE WG - Mediterranean Electricity Markets Observatory (Memo) Part 2 – Regional electricity markets
The MEDREG Electricity Working Group (ELE WG) decided to set up a Mediterranean Electricity Markets Observatory (MEMO) in order to assess the progress in establishing and integrating national and (sub)regional markets. The MEMO relies on a periodical survey filled in every three years by MEDREG members since 2007. This report assesses the status and recent developments with regards to e.g. international trade priorities, (sub)regional market structures and transmission rights. To achieve a clear state of play for the Mediterranean countries, a questionnaire was sent to all MEDREG members and 15 responses were collected. The next update of the report on regional markets is planned in 3 years-time (publication in 2018).

Benchmarking and Performance Evaluation on Quality of Supply within Distribution Grids in MedReg Countries
The ELE Working Group studied quality of supply in MEDREG countries. It benchmarked quality of supply and evaluated the performance of supply within distribution grids. The aim of this report is to investigate MEDREG members' experiences concerning the distribution system, namely in the measurement and indicators used to evaluate the performance of the grids.

Master Plan towards Regional Market
Preamble Based on the MedReg Action plan (2010-2012), the Electricity Ad Hoc Group (ELE Group) aims to carry out work needed towards the eventual development of an electricity master plan within MEDREG member countries. This work should be made jointly with the Mediterranean Electricity Ring (MEDRING) and other interconnections projects. Therefore, ELE Group is to prepare a master plan for energy and interconnection expansion that reflects the approach of Regulators, as agreed among MedReg members. Objective and Scope of Work The main objective and scope of this report is to establish a strategy and a master plan for the development of electricity trade among MedReg countries through regional integration which focuses on the regulatory bodies views. It will concentrate on the institutional and regulatory aspects of cross-border trade and electricity market integration among the MedReg Countries. However, the MedReg member countries’ posse different levels of internal market structure and design development, as well as various interconnection maturities, which add to the burden of harmonized electricity interconnection in the MedReg territories. Therefore, to achieve this goal, studies had been conducted and others still undergoing to assess the potential of energy integration in the MedReg region based on existing geographical subregions; the South (Maghreb Countries), North (EU MedReg Countries), and in between (EIJLLPST Countries). These sub-regions will hopefully integrate to form a regional electricity market based on a harmonized regional market structure and design.

Summary assessment: survey on the legal framework for management of electricity interconnection in the Mediterranean region
The aim of this report was to draw up a comprehensive picture of the management of interconnections in electricity in the Mediterranean region and to provide a basis for developing common recommendations on the regulatory issues related to cross border interconnections in electricity in the Mediterranean Basin. A questionnaire was prepared and circulated to INS and ELE Group members.

Report on heading to an integrated Mediterranean electricity market.
Based upon the MEDREG Action plan 2010-2011-2012, the "Ad hoc group on Electricity (ELE Group)" has been assigned to examine and, in case, will propose common positions on the following subjects: present and future interconnections infrastructure needs (for the establishment of an integrated electricity market) from the technical, economic, and financial perspectives; | future of Smart Grids in MEDREG countries; | unbundling of sector activities; | operational issues concerning cross border exchange and congestion management practices; | market design; | transparency of market information and services; | non discriminatory TPA to infrastructure and services; | tariff methodologies; | price regulation.
