Accelerating the energy transition through international collaboration – a conversation between Audrey Zibelman and energy regulators

Background

RETA – the Regulatory Energy Transition Accelerator- is an initiative created to enhance the capacity of regulators to increase the speed of the clean energy transitions. It works directly with energy regulators in order to facilitate knowledge sharing, peer to peer learning and thought leadership on regulatory issues. It acts as well as a central resource for regulators to seek knowledge products and regulatory tools that can help mitigate challenges regulators face when trying to regulate for the sustainable, affordable and secure energy systems of the future. The Accelerator was launched at COP26 by Ofgem, IEA, IRENA, RMI and the World Bank along with regulators from around the world as part of the Green Grids Initiative. Today, it brings together representatives of more than 20 regulators worldwide and keeps growing.

The initiative’s goal is to accelerate:

  • flexible, renewable-based systems;
  • regulatory frameworks to deliver the energy transition;
  • network planning for wide scale electrification;
  • regional interconnection
  • a fair and inclusive energy transition

IEA, as the RETA Administrator, will host its first public event “Accelerating the energy transition through international collaboration” on 21 June at 3pm CEST.

This virtual conversation will bring together Audrey Zibelman, Vice President of Tapestry, X’s Electric Grid Moonshot and Jonathan Brearley, CEO of Ofgem as well as Heads of energy regulators worldwide to discuss the regulatory gaps for energy transition.
