The creation of a sound environment for energy investments in the Mediterranean region: MEDREG’s recommendations

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 a harmonized regulatory framework at regional level. In a context of strong investment needs, one of MEDREG’s key objectives is to advocate in favor 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.
