Electricity regulators in the rapidly growing emerging economies of India, South Africa, Brazil and Mexico face similar challenges. Clean energy options are supporting their efforts to secure adequate electricity to power economic development without compromising local and global environmental benefits, but also raising complex tradeoffs.
The Forum on Clean Energy, Good Governance and Electricity Regulation hosted by the World Resources Institute (USA), Idasa (South Africa) and Prayas Energy Group (India) earlier this year created a platform for regulators from these countries to share their insights and experiences designing new programmes to support energy efficiency and renewable energy as a way of meeting societal electricity needs. Their report was released on 20 October 2010. Read the full report and list of participants here.
