Beneficial Electrification: Principles for the Public Interest (Webinar)

Implemented properly, the electrification of end uses currently powered by fossil fuels can provide significant benefits—lowering consumer energy bills, helping utilities better manage the grid, and reducing emissions. Implemented in a policy vacuum, however, electrification could simply increase energy usage, potentially increasing costs and worsening environmental impacts. RAP’s paper on beneficial electrification principles offers guidance for…

Herausforderungen bei den Strom-Verteilnetzen im Rahmen der Sektorkopplung (Elektromobilität, Wärmepumpen)

Gleichlaufend mit der Energiewende entwickelt sich rapid die Sektorkopplung—die Verbindung der Sektoren Strom, Verkehr und Wärme. Zunehmend stellen Elektrofahrzeuge und Power-to-Heat-Anwendungen — insbesondere Wärmepumpen — neue Lasten in den dezentralen Stromsystemen dar. Diese Entwicklungen werfen Fragen auf, wie der Verteilnetzbetrieb und das lokale Management gestaltet werden soll sowie deren Regulierung. Das schließt auch Optionen zur…

Getting Started: Rethinking Utility Regulation in an Era of Exponential Change (Webinar)

State and federal utility regulators have traditionally controlled the electric power industry through their decisions. But rapid technology change means cleaner, lower-cost, and more resilient options for meeting customers’ energy needs are or soon will be available. Customers may soon have cost-effective options to meet their own energy needs through transactive platforms and markets. Regulators…

Harnessing Performance-Based Regulation to Meet the Power Sector Challenges of the 21st Century

In many jurisdictions around the world, energy regulators are attempting to spur innovation in the electric power industry by connecting regulatory goals, targets, and measures to utility performance, executive compensation, and investor returns. The lead authors from RAP’s recent report, Next-Generation Performance-Based Regulation, joined Edison Electric Institute for a webinar, co-hosted with the 21st Century…

Regionalisation of European electricity markets needs a more regional approach (Webinar)

The European Commission’s proposal to establish regional operational centres (ROCs) is a welcome step toward further integration of the EU internal electricity market. Yet, by expanding this proposal, policymakers could improve governance and the remit of the ROCs to ensure a truly regional, coordinated approach to efficient operation of Europe’s highly interconnected transmission system. In a webinar…
