The energy sector is undergoing a serious transition, being subject to the challenges and opportunities brought by the unstoppable global trends of decentralisation, decarbonisation, and digitalisation. As perhaps the most flexible component of the energy sector, the power sector is rapidly changing, through the introduction of distributed energy resources (DERs), the adoption of cleaner technologies, and the utilisation of ICT technologies at all levels. The common idea or the motive underlying the portfolio of topics that are brought for discussion in this Global Forum is that the primary objective of the regulatory institutions and the regulation itself must be to facilitate and enable the best technical and economic solutions, to minimise unnecessary regulatory interference and to encourage efficient results. The thematic lines of the forum were: · Universal access to electricity · Power market and networks · Decarbonisation · Electric vehicles · Electricity storage · Digitalisation. The topics selected for debate via our Knowledge Space sessions were: 1A) Removing barriers to massive electrification business models 1B) The role of regulated electricity tariffs in competitive retail markets 2A) A “utility-like” approach to large-scale electrification: the electricity company of the future 2B) Unlocking the value of storage in market-based power systems 3A) Incentivizing the development of network resilience 3B) Regulatory challenges of distribution networks with distributed resources 4A) Establishing priorities for regional power market integration in emerging economies 4B) The role of indicative planning in the ongoing economy electrification process 5A) Enhancing the efficiency and effectiveness of regional power markets in emerging economies 5B) Unlocking the potential of electric vehicles in the power system 6A) Transitioning to a more efficient and competitive power market in emerging economies 6B) Challenges and opportunities of digitalisation for the electricity sector.
