Design a Clean Energy Future
Government decision-makers — ministers, regulators, elected representatives — are pivotal to the energy transition. The foundation for clean energy is good decision-making. The best decisions are informed by data, a candid review of costs and benefits, and choices to make the complicated simpler. RAP is working to ensure that our recommendations focus on those most energy-insecure. RAP’s deep experience in advising this kind of decision-making makes us a trusted resource for navigating the complexities of the energy transition.
Why This Matters
Establishing all-inclusive clean energy policies starts with expertise and smart transition decisions.
A variety of tools in a regulator’s policy toolbox can help achieve clean energy goals. Smart design of electricity rates sends consumers the right signals to use energy at optimal times, making the power grid more flexible and more affordable to operate. Performance-based regulation gives utilities the right incentives to provide the best service. Modern practices for assessing the costs and benefits of energy investments ensure that the right technologies are adopted. RAP’s experts have deep experience with these ideas and how to fairly put them into practice around the world.
What needs to happen
The policies that drive energy decisions must be reviewed, adapted and even overhauled to match changing technologies and climate conditions. The leaders entrusted with that responsibility can count on tools they can trust from RAP.
How Rap is Energizing Change
Our name captures our most important job: regulatory assistance.
We understand that help only really helps when it’s practical, clear, honest and anchored in reality. That’s why RAP’s policy toolbox is designed to empower policymakers and regulators to do their job best. Over the years we’ve produced comprehensive regulatory and policy guides, model legislation and more.
We believe one proven way to energize change is through the power of trust, the kind we have built over years through peer-to-peer relationships and the rigor of our work.
