Palestine: EU-funded Association of Mediterranean Energy Regulators holds workshop to discuss transition to renewable and reliable energy
February 16, 2021
Last week the Association of Mediterranean Energy Regulators (MEDREG) organised an online workshop for the Palestinian Electricity Regulator to illustrate the main points of the 2020 report “Least-Cost Distribution Network Tariff Design in Theory and Implementation in the Palestinian Electricity Systems” elaborated for the regulator by MEDREG Electricity Working Group.
Attendees had the chance to discuss with Prof Alessandro Rubino from “Università degli Studi di Bari Aldo Moro” the challenges that power system planners, operators, and regulators face by transitioning to a renewable and decarbonized future while maintaining system reliability and ensuring affordable power.
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.
