Virtual Working Groups

Under the ICER platform, energy regulators cooperate within ICER through Virtual Working Groups (VWGs).

From 2009-2015, ICER was structured along four Virtual Working Groups: Security of Supply, Climate Change, Competition and Affordability, and Good Regulatory Practices. For the 2015-2018 period, the Working Groups were refocused on the roles and challenges that regulators face in evolving market situations, as follows:

Activities among members of the VWGs may include:

  • Workshops on specific issues (alone or jointly with collaborating stakeholders organizations)
  • Webinars by regulatory experts
  • Development of reports
  • Specific surveys
  • Data gathering
  • Side events during regional regulatory association conferences
