NARUC engages with organizations of regulators in Europe, the Americas and elsewhere to discuss best practices on addressing the major energy issues facing the world. Through dialogue and information exchange, NARUC joins with its fellow regulators in identifying how to respond to a shifting energy landscape. NARUC cooperates with the following organizations:
The International Confederation of Energy Regulators (ICER), established at the fourth World Forum on Energy Regulation in Athens in October 2009, provides a framework for interaction and cooperation of energy regulators. By establishing this voluntary confederation, ICER hopes to exchange information and best practices in the regulation field and contribute to the evolution towards a sustainable planet. This is achieved in part through the facilitation of regular and structured contacts and cooperation between regulators.
ICER has four virtual working groups. As an active member of ICER, U.S. Commissioners and staff as well as NARUC staff participate in the following groups:
NARUC is a member of the Steering Committee of the World Forum on Energy Regulation (WFER). This triennial forum provides an opportunity to learn about the latest advances in regulation and enables exchanges between representatives of over 100 countries.
The Executive Committee of Canada's Energy and Utility Regulators (CAMPUT) and the Executive Committee of NARUC meet annually to share information, experiences, and best practices.
The Council of European Energy Regulators (CEER) is a not-for-profit association working to facilitate the creation of an internal market for gas and electricity in Europe. Since 2000, select NARUC and CEER regulators have met every 12-18 months for informal discussions on electricity and gas issues of common interest, including market design, competition, market monitoring, and cross-border trade. Beginning in 2007, representatives from the U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) have joined in the discussions.
