FSR in Washington

Regulation Workshop:

Regulatory Challenges and Tools to the Introduction of New Technologies

On 27-28 September 2018, The Florence School of Regulation (FSR) is in Washington together with the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) to initiate the dialogue on the need for state-of-the-art regulation in 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 a sustainable and accessible energy industry.

The FSR panels:

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 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.
