Trusted Expertise for a Fast-Changing, Critical System

We are former utility and environmental regulators, industry executives, system operators, and other policymakers and officials with extensive experience in the power sector. Our team focuses on the world's four largest power markets, responsible for half of all power generation: China, Europe, India, and the United States.

Technological advances and dramatic declines in cost are creating new opportunities to improve the economic efficiency of the power sector, reducing its environmental footprint while improving customer welfare. The rapidly-evolving power sector holds the promise of cleaner and more customer-centric energy use—if policymakers update and adapt the regulatory paradigm.

RAP’s global team has first-hand knowledge of the constraints and challenges policymakers face, and applies its collective insight to anticipate what they will face in the future. Building on peer-to-peer relationships, RAP helps energy and air quality decision-makers and stakeholders navigate the complexities of power sector policy, regulation, and markets. These policymakers and stakeholders depend on RAP staff for reliable and relevant information and assistance.

Sharing What Works

We craft innovative, practical, and forward-looking policy and market solutions designed to meet local needs and, through our network, can quickly share lessons learned across the globe.

Informed by RAP’s global experience, power sector decision-makers and stakeholders have access to a constantly expanding set of adaptable policy tools and market solutions developed and tested around the world.
