The Florence School of Regulation (FSR) is collaborating with the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) to initiate the dialogue on the need for state-of-the-art regulation in Latin America times of rapid innovation.

The objective of this workshop is to understand what are the key challenges that regulatory authorities are currently facing in LAC and what are the challenges expected for the next 15 years. How the IDB may help to build regulatory knowledge to promote an efficient transition to sustainable and accessible energy industry.

At the workshop, FSR will kick start with an opening panel on ‘Utilities of the future, regulatory challenges and innovative tools’. The panel will discuss why any regulation in Latin America is needed in the future when business models and innovation is shifting the old energy world as we know it, what are the emerging business models in this transitory phase, how can regulators prepare themselves to ride the new wave and experiences from the Californian regulator on their journey so far.

The panel:

  • Jean-Michel Glachant, Director FSR
  • Ignacio Perez Arriaga, Director Research FSR & Professor at  MIT
  • Norman Bay, Ex-Director Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC)
  • Andrew McAllister, Commissioner of California Energy Commission

As part of this initiative, FSR is preparing a research report presenting the recent disruptions that the energy sector faces and the current developments that address these challenging new times. Inputs from the workshop will be incorporated into the report which will be published in December 2018.
