The Regulatory Assistance Project (RAP)® is an independent, global, nongovernmental organization advancing policy innovation and thought leadership within the energy community. 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. RAP’s team focuses on the world’s four largest power markets, responsible for half of all power generation: China, Europe, India, and the United States.

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. We will do what we do best: develop solutions to the questions regulators and other decision-makers are asking (or should be asking); change the narrative; and leverage partnerships to accelerate change. RAP’s key policy areas build upon past work and complement each other:

  • Accelerate electrification of buildings and transportation.
  • Accelerate the phase-out of gas infrastructure.
  • Remove barriers to distributed energy resources.
  • Decarbonize the electric grid.

The Regulatory Assistance Project is an equal opportunity employer.
