ERRA is honoured to present to you a series of regulatory textbooks prepared by the Energy Regulators Regional Association (ERRA) within the frame of its INOGATE project called “Capacity Building for Sustainable Energy Regulation in Eastern Europe and Central Asia” – funded by the European Commission.
The key objective of the textbooks is to strengthen the institutional memory of the project by recording the expertise accumulated during the activities of the project. The regulatory experience and knowledge on important topics, while extensively covered in the workshops, also calls for a written approach that provides the ability to analyze the issues in a more complex and in-depth manner.
The textbooks extensively rely on the different project programmes organised on four main themes: (1) Renewable Energy Regulation, (2) Regulatory Implication of Energy Efficiency Policies, (3) Vulnerable Customers and Possible Support Schemes, (4) Regulatory Implication of District Heating.
The list of authors represents internationally acknowledged experts of the specific themes, many of them are practising or former regulators which brings a special value to the textbooks. Most of the authors were involved in all of the meetings, workshops and training courses implemented under the umbrella of the project.
ERRA is convinced that they will be useful and relevant not only for the purposes of Inogate Partner Countries but for many other regulators and government officials from countries with emerging economies. ERRA will do its best to promote the publications to this audience and present these textbooks to future stakeholders of ERRA.
