Regional electricity markets (REM) are a natural step towards the creation of a single European electricity market. There are seven Electricity Regional Initiatives (ERI) launched by European Regulators Group for Electricity and Gas (ERGEG). This paper brings the focus to the eight REM covering the South East European (SEE) countries initiated by the European Commission. The congestion management and capacity allocation are used as an example to show that the SEE REM deals with the same priority issues as the other REMs do, and that the progress of this eight REM is great despite the short time of its existence. Given the EU membership perspective of the SEE countries and the expectation that the SEE REM shall become part of the internal electricity market, as well as the overlap between some members of the SEE REM and the other ERGEG ERI, the work of both initiatives shall be organized in a manner that uses the best practices and experience gained in each of them.
