Mr. Abdellatif Bardach, President of the National Electricity Regulatory Authority (ANRE) of Morocco in his capacity as President of the French-speaking network of energy regulators, RegulaE.Fr, inaugurated the Francophone Energy Regulators Conference with the Minister of Mines, Petroleum and Energy of the Republic of Côte d’Ivoire in Abidjan. The event was an important milestone in strengthening collaboration and constructive exchanges on energy infrastructure in Africa. Harnessing the diversity of resources and technological innovations across African and Francophone nations, the conference highlighted initiatives to improve access to energy, stabilize electricity grids and integrate renewable energy. Presentations by member regulators highlighted the critical importance of cooperation in addressing the continent’s energy challenges, with a view to sustainable and integrated development. In line with the vision of sustainable development advocated by His Majesty King Mohammed VI, May God Assist Him, ANRE is committed to supporting the development of projects that benefit the entire continent, thereby strengthening regional capacities and stimulating inclusive economic growth. The event catalyzed the participants’ commitment to regional energy integration, focused on strengthening energy infrastructure and harmonizing energy regulation. Recognizing the crucial importance of international interactions in the energy sector, ANRE continues to promote major strategic initiatives. As head of the Mediterranean and Francophone Association of Energy Regulators, ANRE coordinates the collaboration of 58 regulators mainly from the European and African continents. This role confirms Morocco’s position as an energy convergence point between Europe and Africa, strengthening its influence on the global energy scene. This dynamic not only strengthens Morocco’s regional position, but also opens new perspectives for the advancement of energy regulation in these regions. About RegulaE.Fr: The French-speaking Network of Energy Regulators (RegulaE.Fr) was created on November 28, 2016 in Paris with the aim of bringing together regulators who share the French language within a single network in order to facilitate exchanges and encourage collaboration between its members. RegulaE.Fr currently has 32 regulatory authorities from Africa, Europe, the Americas and Asia Pacific. The network thus promotes the sharing of information and best practices in energy regulation, facilitates technical cooperation between regulators, ensures coordination with international training programs, and works to ensure the sustainability of its activities by seeking funding from European and international donors.
