Energy Community Regulatory Board Elects New President
The Energy Community Regulatory Board at its 19th meeting on 28 March 2012 elected Mr. Shkelqim Bozgo as new ECRB President. President Bozgo, Commissioner at the Albanian Energy Regulatory Authority, assumes office as of 29 March 2012 for a (renewable) one year term. “I am delighted by the confidence of my ECRB colleagues”, the newly designated ECRB President stated and expressed his understanding for the core role of the ECRB in the Energy Community process: “the small size of the Energy Community Contracting Parties requires a regional approach, if we want to successfully attract investments. The ECRB provides a tailor made platform for regulators harmonizing their rules and decisions across borders and developing common best practice solutions”.
Mr. Bozgo takes over ECRB Presidency from Mr. Mirsad Salkic. “I did not only personally enjoy the past two years as ECRB President a lot”, Mr. Salkic stated, “I am also in particular proud of the high quality deliverables my ECRB colleagues were able to develop. This outstanding commitment and profound expert knowledge is clearly the backbone of the ECRB”, the resigning ECRB President expressed his appreciation for the ECRB members’ involvement in the process.
The new ECRB President takes over responsibility for the development of the activities and deliverables of the ECRB Work Program 2012 in the areas of electricity and gas regulation and customer protection (www.ecrb.eu).
