MEDREG, the Association of Mediterranean Energy Regulators, has held its first General Assembly of 2020 online due to the restrictions imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic. The event took place on 10 June.
Among other subjects, MEDREG members were updated on the progress made on the various Working Groups reports planned under the Action Plan 2020. Information was provided on how regulators managed the emergency situation caused by the Covid-19 outbreak in the Mediterranean region and on how MEDREG is rescheduling the deliverables included in the framework of the 2020 Support to National Reforms activities over the year.
MEDREG is the Association of Mediterranean Energy Regulators, which brings together 27 regulators from 23 countries, spanning the European Union (EU), the Balkans and North Africa. Mediterranean regulators work together to promote greater compatibility of the regional energy markets and legislation, seeking progressive market integration in the Euro-Mediterranean basin.
MEDREG promotes a transparent, stable and compatible regulatory framework in the Mediterranean Region fostering infrastructure investments, consumer protection, and enhanced energy cooperation. Based on a bottom-up approach, MEDREG acts as a collaborative platform for regulators from the Northern and the Southern shore of the Mediterranean to exchange technical knowledge and good practices while supporting each other to reinforce their regulatory capacity.
The Association is co-funded by the European Union and benefits from the financial contribution of its members.
