ICER International Confederation of Energy Regulators

ERRA

Energy Regulators Regional Association (ERRA)
The Energy Regulators Regional Association (ERRA) is a voluntary organization comprising of independent energy regulatory bodies primarily from Europe, Asia, Africa, Middle East, South and North America. ERRA began as a cooperative exchange among 12 energy regulatory bodies. The U.S. National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners (NARUC), through a Cooperative Agreement with the US Agency for International Development (USAID), provided technical forums, meetings and study tours for the energy regulators of the above region from 1999-2008. During these meetings, the participants expressed the need for an association similar to NARUC that could offer a more formal platform for exchanging experiences and ideas to better learn from each other’s experiences. In 1999, an ad-hoc Steering Committee began development of the structural and operational elements of the future association, including its purpose and objectives. In December 2000, a Constitution was signed by 15 members that established the ERRA in Bucharest. USAID’s long-term support ensured that ERRA developed into an internationally-recognized association that achieved operational, financial and programmatic sustainability.
