The ERRA 21st Annual Conference – in 2024 called the Energy Regulators Forum (ERF) – will be organised on 15-17 May, 2024 in Bangkok, Thailand. The event will be hosted and supported by the Energy Regulatory Commission of Thailand. The Conference is going to be one of three parallel major energy market events running at the same venue: Queen Sirikit National Convention Centre:
- The ERF is going to be an anchor event of the Future Energy Asia Exhibition and Summit, Asia’s leading energy transition platform attracting more than 21,000 attendees from around the region.
- ERRA will also support the Energy Regulatory Commission of Thailand hosting a Summit of ASEAN Regulators constituting a breakout session of the ERF.
The goal of the ERRA 21st Annual Conference remains unchanged: to convene national regulators in a global format with investors, utilities, consultants and academics to engage in strategic dialogue on policy and regulatory developments, and to map a way forward for the energy transition in ERRA regions including Asia.

Session ISAFEGUARDING ENERGY TRANSITION GOALSSession I will outline the intricate clean energy transformation challenges that stand in front of the energy sector and will put the key actors that shape the response to them – policymakers and regulators – in the spotlight. As energy transition is an ongoing global mission with complex regional and local risks and opportunities that have to be addressed with tailored legal frameworks, the session will identify high-level observations on where, when and how to employ them to the benefit of the energy system and the ultimate welfare of the end-consumers.
Session IIIMPACT OF CLEAN ENERGY SOURCES ON THE GRIDS AND SYSTEM STABILITYPreserving system stability with increased penetration of renewable energy sources is a growing challenge in most jurisdictions. Session II will analyse methods for monitoring the system and measuring the impact of variable RES, and offer conclusions on possible regulatory methods and tools to promote and facilitate grid resilience. A separate focus will be given to grid code requirements and the importance of cross-border interconnection and regional regulatory harmonisation.
Session IIIMOBILISING GREEN FINANCESession III involve key stakeholders of the energy and finance sectors responsible for and experienced in scaling up green finance. Speakers will present the process of facilitating successful projects on national and on regional levels. The discussions will attempt to showcase new business models and innovative financing mechanisms corresponding with the fact that private investment is a critical element of the energy transition.
Session IVFACILITATING INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGIES FOR ENERGY TRANSITIONThe final Session will have a two-fold character. On the one hand, the program will elaborate what are the instruments that regulators can employ to facilitate or accelerate the utilization of new technologies and innovation in the sector to support decarbonization. The presentations will highlight both regulatory experimentation via sandboxing as well as innovative mechanisms within the standard regulatory toolbox. On the other hand, the session will offer a range of case study examples where innovation is being put in practice – presentations will show how companies that spearhead energy transition implement pilots and how do they cooperate with regulators while doing so.
