MEDREG Gas Working Group: Online consultation collects inputs on role of gas in supporting energy transition
March 25, 2021
MEDREG Gas Working Group (GAS WG) has launched a consultation to collect inputs from a diverse array of stakeholders on the statements and recommendations of the report that it published in 2020 on the role of natural gas in supporting the energy transition from a fossil-based system to a zero-carbon one. The consultation is open until 31 March.
The scope of the report is to give an overview on the current condition of gas markets in the Mediterranean and focus on the role of this fuel in supporting the energy transition of the area, with a particular focus on the regulators’ role. Given the relevance of the subject and the consistency of the data collected, MEDREG decided to make it the object of a public consultation.
Targeted stakeholders for the consultation will include the industry, TSO, DSO, shippers and traders, national and international financial institutions, EU bodies, research centers and think tanks, trade associations, concerned consumers and international organizations and associations related to gas that are active in the Mediterranean region.
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.
