Europe and Eurasia: Black Sea Initiative

Regional Forum on Emerging Regulatory Issues: Perspectives from the Black Sea, Southeast Europe and Africa

Date: October 2014
Location: Istanbul, Turkey

With the support of the US Agency for International Development, the forum provided a highly interactive platform for public utility regulators from the Black Sea, Southeast Europe and African regions to discuss critical and emerging issues in the energy regulatory policy. Regulators at the forum examined drivers that enable or impede more robust development of energy resources, infrastructure investment climate, competitive markets, and regional trade.

Separately, Black Sea regulators met  to review the final iteration of the Principles of Regulation to Promote Energy Efficiency in the Black Sea Region and discuss development of issues relevant to each Black Sea country in the context of supporting energy efficiency.
