Dr Annegret Groebel appointed as Vice-Chair of ACER Board of Regulators


ACER’s Board of Regulators (BoR), which met in Madrid on 27 April, appointed Dr Annegret Groebel as its new Vice Chair for a two and a half year term. She succeeds Walter Boltz.


The new Vice-Chair, Dr Groebel, has been Head of the Section ‘International Coordination’ in the German Regulatory Authority for Energy, Telecommunications, Post and Railways (Bundesnetzargentur), since 2001 and was promoted Head of Department in 2009.


Dr Groebel, who also chairs the Agency's Monitoring, Integrity and Transparency Working Group, remarked that: "In the coming years, European regulators will be faced with the challenge of contributing to the Energy Union, an integral part of which is completing the internal energy market as well as ensuring wholesale energy market integrity and transparency which remain at the heart of ACER's work. I look forward to working with the BoR colleagues to meet this challenge."


In welcoming the new BoR Vice Chair Lord Mogg , BoR Chair, said:  Dr Groebel is an excellent choice having been very actively involved with all aspects of our work and particularly in the implementation of the regulation for market integrity and transparency.


The next Board of Regulators will be held in Ljubljana on June 8th 2016.
