Our Impact

We occasionally take on work outside of our four main regions in situations where we can have a lasting impact. We seek longer-term engagements in which our deep regulatory expertise will benefit policymakers or the NGO community.

We currently provide technical assistance to the Turks and Caicos Islands government as it develops comprehensive reforms aimed at increasing energy efficiency, promoting renewable energy, and ensuring the economic efficiency and cost-effectiveness of the power sector.

Through a partnership with the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research, we are also bringing global best practices in integrated resource planning and governance of planning processes to the governments of Namibia and Zimbabwe, the Regional Electricity Regulators Association of Southern Africa, and the Southern African Power Pool as these entities pursue greater levels of renewable energy.

Our Focus

Our team contextualizes its international expertise to local conditions to create sustainable solutions to local challenges. We focus on best practices that consistently create sufficient revenues to ensure grid reliability, drive investment in clean resources, balance cost allocation fairly among disparate groups, send the right price signals to customers, and motivate performance consistent with public policy objectives.
