  • European Energy Markets 

    As the Portuguese regulator for the energy sector, ERSE actively contributes to the work of European regulatory organizations. This participation has been of great importance for the consolidation of energy regulation in Portugal.

    The Council of European Energy Regulators (CEER) and the Agency for the Cooperation of Energy Regulators (ACER) are European bodies in which national energy regulatory authorities cooperate in the pursuit of common interests, while promoting competition in European markets through the gradual liberalization and the establishment of a European single market for energy in compliance with European legislation for this sector. 

    CEER is a Belgian non-profit association established by regulators in 2000. CEER acts as a platform for cooperation, information exchange and assistance between Europe's national energy regulators.

    ERSE served as its first President until 2005. ERSE also had other important positions within CEER, namely being chair of the Gas Working Group between 2016 and 2017. Currently, ERSE is chair of the Gas Working Group (since 2019) as well as vice-chair of the Consumer and Retail Markets Working Group since 2017.

    ACER is a European Union Agency created under Regulation (EC) n.º 713/2009 of the European Parlament and the Council, of 13 July 2009, having started its work in 2011. The Agency has been assigned responsabilities by the European union on the the energy markets and cross-border interconnections.

    ERSE's participation in these two associations is accomplished through technical working groups by subject. Starting in April 2016, ERSE served as Chair of the CEER and ACER's Gas Working Group, for a period of one year.
