Distinguished Scholar Award

ICER has established its Distinguished Scholar Awards with a view to contributing to an increased reflection on energy regulation policy issues. These Awards acknowledge important contributions made to enhance electricity and gas regulation around the world. In order to promote a broad consideration of the issues and to ensure the applicability of the papers to ICER’s diverse membership, ICER will select two recipients for the Distinguished Scholar Award, based on the following categories: 1) impact on developing countries; and 2) “next” practices.

The Distinguished Scholar Awards are given out every three years, in conjunction with the World Forum on Energy Regulation (WFER).   The Call for Articles which outlines the Submission Process is posted approximately 18 months prior to WFER.  Stay tuned for application information associated with WFER 2021.
