Trusted Expertise for a Fast-Changing, Critical System

RAP works toward a clean, reliable, equitable, and cost-efficient energy future. RAP provides clarity, vision and new ideas to decision-makers and the broader energy community, by developing and sharing global best practices tailored to local priorities, acting as a trusted advisor to promote implementation. 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 firsthand knowledge of the constraints and challenges policymakers face. Building on peer-to-peer relationships, RAP helps decision-makers and stakeholders navigate the complexities of climate and power sector policy, regulation, and markets. They see RAP as a trusted advisor for reliable and relevant information and assistance.

Sharing What Works

For more than three decades, RAP has been a leader in developing solutions to the world’s most pressing power sector challenges. In the next five years RAP will focus on key policy areas to drive a more efficient and equitable decarbonized energy future and to ensure a sustainable and just transition: Accelerate electrification of buildings and transportation; accelerate the phaseout of gas infrastructure; remove barriers to distributed energy resources; and decarbonize the electric grid.
