CRE’s activity concerns the construction of an internal energy market, combining competitiveness, security and durability in the environmental aspect, on the scale of the European Union.
CRE participates actively in the European work
CRE is a very active member of the Council of European Energy Regulators (CEER) and of the Agency for the Cooperation of Energy Regulators (ACER). It is also strongly involved in the construction of the European internal electricity and gas market by harmonising network access regulations and optimising interconnections.
The CRE is represented in most of the CEER work groups and thus interacts on a daily basis with its European counterparts, with whom it works drafting the operation rules for the European internal market.
CRE holds the vice-presidency of the CEER
Michel Thiollière, a member of the Board of CRE, was elected in February 2011 to serve as one of the five vice-presidents of the CEER, next to Walter Boltz, the director of the Austrian regulation body, Carlo Crea, the general director of the Italian regulation body, Johannes Kindler, the vice-president of the German regulation body and Marek Woszczyk, the president of the Polish regulation body. CEER is presided over by Lord Mogg, the non-executive president of the British regulation body.
