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.
The Institutional Working Group (INS WG)

(Jordan, EMRC)
(France, CRE)

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.

Initiatives for 2023
  • Report on National Regulatory Authorities’ Role in Opening the Market to Competition: It will tackle the role of the national regulatory authorities in setting an effective regulatory framework and procedures that facilitate the opening of the market to competition.
  • Workshop on Rules of Management of Conflict of Interest: The INS WG will organise a workshop on the management of conflict of interest within the electricity and gas markets and the role of the NRAs in that aspect. 
  • Technical Support to Members: Workshop for the Lebanese member LCEC to assist him in the development of regulatory strategies.
  • Training for members on the implementation of regulations.
