Commission Support

Technical Assistance & Training

Public utility commissions constantly face new and complex issues at the intersections of technology, engineering, policy, accounting and finance, regulation, and more. NARUC convenes members and experts, develops resources, and delivers training for Commissioners and commission staff across the country on a wide variety of energy topics relevant to utility regulation. In addition, NARUC connects commissions with technical assistance and support opportunities from the federal government and the U.S. Department of Energy's National Laboratories.

In addition to three national conferences per year, NARUC routinely hosts virtual and in-person educational events. Topical pages within this website include links to recent and upcoming webinars, including recordings and presentation materials. The NARUC calendar includes links to NARUC’s twice annual Rate School, affiliated university training programs, and the live online Regulatory Training Initiative.
