Project Description

Non-discriminatory, transparent and predictable regulatory frameworks are essential for the development of energy markets. Energy sector regulatory frameworks are continuously evolving as reforms are undertaken and new challenges emerge. An important mechanism for addressing regulatory challenges and improving the quality of regulation is the exchange of knowledge between regulators in EBRD’s CoOs and more experienced counterparts. Peer-to-peer policy dialogue can strengthen the capacity of regulators in our CoOs, increasing the confidence of investors in regulatory frameworks and facilitating private sector investment.
The Framework is consistent with the Bank’s mandate and priorities:

  • The Bank’s Energy Sector Strategy (BDS13-291/F) specifically highlights policy dialogue through “exchanges between regulators within the Bank's region as well as peer-to-peer policy dialogue between regulators.”
  • Given the critical importance of sound regulatory frameworks for the further development of renewable technologies, the Framework is also aligned with the Bank’s Green Economy Transition (BDS15-196/F) approach.
  • The Framework builds on an MoU with the International Confederation of Energy Regulators (ICER) (of which CEER is a founding member).
