Setting of tariffs, 18-21 September 2018, Milan (Italy)
As part of its support activities to members, MEDREG organised a training for its members on “Setting of Tariffs” on 18-21 September 2018 in Milan (Italy) which saw the participation of 19 regulatory experts from Albania, Algeria, Egypt, France, Italy, Lebanon, Jordan, Morocco and Turkey.


This tailor-made 3-day training defined the theoretical objectives that regulation should pursue in designing gas and electricity tariffs and introduced participants to several issues surrounding ratemaking both under liberalised and traditional markets. We explored the fundamentals of gas and electricity tariff design and its relation with the overall functioning of the energy markets. Then, we discussed the different costs that are reflected in access and integral tariffs for electricity and gas as well as the various structure and design for each type of tariff. Finally, the hot topics of subsidies to consumers and their impact on tariffs were analysed. 

The course was designed to encourage the active involvement of all trainees in the training. Each session combined presentations with discussions on the practical issues and challenges faced by participants in their daily work. In addition to the use of lectures and discussions, participants received from each speaker a set of notes summarising the main take-away points of the session and were engaged in a problem-solving exercise to enhance their understanding of the topics presented in the course.

A handbook gathering the main content of the 13 modules presented during the three-day event has been developed. Exclusively available for MEDREG Members, it is meant for regulatory staff dealing with or willing to become familiar with the complex issue of tariff setting. It offers the participants the possibility to go back to and refer to the lectures given in the course.

The handbook is available in the Members’ area under the Training section.
