Three MEDREG members consisting of CREG, EgyptERA, and EMRC representing Algeria, Egypt, and Jordan respectively visited the Portuguese regulator ERSE to learn from the experience of the countries who have already undergone the process or have some track record with the distributed Renewable Energy (RE) connection code, battery storage, and smart meters.



Indeed, these three members are facing challenges of security of supply and increasing electricity demand. The increase in decentralised electricity production linked to the development of renewable energies, the emergence of new uses, the implementation of the national strategy to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, are all challenges that must be met to achieve the energy transition at the best cost.



Participants learned from case studies that described the successful experience of countries in the different topics addressed, with a focus on the role of the regulator in the process.
They studied the impact of smart meters and smart grids on the reduction of losses, energy efficiency, and demand side management.
Finally, incentive mechanisms for the deployment of distributed generation, storage and smart meters were addressed.
