Markets, Policy & Regulatory

CRA helps clients navigate global energy market, policy, and regulatory issues.

Global energy markets are facing critical changes as the sector transitions and new policies and rules are being implemented to drive efficiency. We work with clients to help shape markets and develop participation strategies. Beyond strategy, we support clients with market compliance, regulatory filings, and dispute-related issues. We bring our expertise to assist utilities and regulatory stakeholders in electricity and gas markets with understanding the uncertainties arising from the energy transition and future regulatory landscape and how best to position themselves to influence regulation and policy.

Globally, we support stakeholders in the electricity and gas markets in a variety of engagements.

Our consulting team comprises economists, former regulatory commissioners and market operators, and subject-matter experts that provide clients with a deep understanding of industry issues and their influence on energy markets.
