Tackling the principles of regulation and energy economics is useful to provide a comprehensive understanding of the mission and duties of a regulator in the context of changing energy markets.
The training, due to take place on 1-3 December, will discuss key principles of energy regulation, detailing what objectives regulatory authorities address as well as their core powers and competences. To do so, the course will present the fundamentals of energy economics both in the gas and electricity markets and relate them to the different duties and tools of regulators, with the goal to unravel the complex relationship between regulation and the management of energy markets. The course will balance theory with practical case studies presented directly by decision-makers involved, including energy regulators, academics and professionals from energy companies.
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.
