Energy research for a sustainable future.

Electricity Regulation

Since its inception, the Helios Centre has been deeply involved in many aspects of the regulation of electric utilities. Its work has included high-level reports on issues ranging from the evolution of competitive markets to performance-based regulation to an energy efficiency reference manual for regulators, prepared by Philippe Dunsky for the Québec Agence d’efficacité énergétique.

At the same time, the Helios Centre has also provided expert testimony in numerous regulatory proceedings in several Canadian provinces, on issues ranging from rates, planning, energy efficiency and the integration of renewables.
