ERRA Regulatory Research Award

Background & Award Objectives

Energy regulation in the ERRA countries has evolved over the last 10-15 years based on the experience of its members and international commitments and practices. The evolution of regulation toward market-based electricity and gas systems in particular has resulted in certain trends and issues. Most regulators now deal with such issues as introduction of competition; the need for expanded investment; affordability and citizen participation; regulatory governance and the political-regulatory relationship as well as other issues.

The ERRA Regulatory Research Award was established in 2014 to encourage, reward and expand energy regulatory research and analysis and contribute to improve regulatory practices among ERRA energy regulators.
