Date: November 14-16, 2008
Location:  New Orleans, Louisiana

During the Seventh EU-US Energy Regulators Roundtable, participants from NARUC and the Council of European Energy Regulators (CEER) discussed recent regulatory developments in the U.S. and the EU; market monitoring, oversight, and abuse; the link between energy and financial markets; climate change; and meeting natural gas demand.

The participants reaffirmed their commitment to continued cooperation and acknowledged the contribution of the EU-US Roundtable in this respect. This transatlantic dialogue allows for the exchange of mutually beneficial information, including an increased awareness of trends in market designs, regulatory models, sustainability and security of supply.
