With the support of the US Agency for International Development, NARUC facilitated a peer review of the National Energy Regulatory Agency of Moldova’s (ANRE) draft electricity and natural gas market rules. Regulators from the Maine Public Utilities Commission and ANRE staff discussed issues that need to be considered in market rules, such as customer choice, supplier of last resort, separation of network from supply, open and fair access, non-discrimination, transparency, new market entry, dispatch and balancing, enforcement of market obligations, consumer protections and others. Representatives from the New England ISO and Iberdrola USA, Maine's largest utility, also participated in the activity.
