Welcome to ICER

Welcome Image

The International Confederation of Energy Regulators (ICER) is a voluntary framework for cooperation between energy regulators from around the globe. Our aim is to improve public and policy-maker awareness and understanding of energy regulation and its role in addressing a wide spectrum of socio-economic, environmental, and market issues.

By establishing this voluntary confederation, with regular and structured contacts, we hope to exchange information and best practices in the regulation field and to contribute to the evolution towards a sustainable planet.

To this end, we undertake joint analysis of a variety of regulatory topics and promote exchanges on training and education practices. We focus our work around three key areas: Electricity, Gas and other Fuels, and Technology and Innovation.

Through ICER, energy regulatory issues can transcend regional and national boundaries and be addressed through dialogue and cooperation on a global scale. Our membership includes over 270 regulatory authorities and spans all continents. ICER is currently chaired by Mr. Daniel Schmerler, Chairman of Peru’s Regulatory Agency for Investment in Energy and Mining (Osinergmin).
