In the framework of the forthcoming G20 Summit, to be held in St. Petersburg on 5-6 September 2013, the Russian Presidency had asked the Federal Tariff Service of the Russian Federation (FTS of Russia) to develop a regulatory agenda and organise a G20 Outreach Energy Regulators Round Table. Alberto Pototschnig, the Director of the Agency, joined other senior representatives from the national energy regulators of G20 countries and regulators’ organisations in a meeting hosted by the FTS of Russia in Kazan on 3-4 June 2013. A Statement containing a shared perspective on “Sound Regulation and Promoting Investment in Energy Infrastructure” was agreed at the meeting. In the Statement, energy regulators express their commitment to helping, through their actions, to address the challenges faced by global energy markets.
