The European Gas Regulatory Forum, also known as the Madrid Forum, gathers key stakeholders across the European energy sector to discuss opportunities and challenges related to further development and decarbonisation of the internal EU gas market and to its integration with other energy sectors.


The forum was set up in 1999 and has covered issues like competition, market transparency, congestion management and infrastructure development. It has regularly reviewed the progress in developing legislation to harmonise EU energy transmission and trading rules through the gas network codes and their implementation.


The participants include national regulatory authorities, EU national governments, the European Commission, gas and electricity transmission system operators, suppliers and traders, end-consumers, network users, gas exchanges and climate and energy NGOs representing civil society.


All meeting documents from the Madrid Forum (since 1999) are available and organised in the CIRCA BC library, open and accessible to all.
