The Regulatory Assistance Project provides technical assistance to utility and environmental regulators to facilitate the adoption of clean-energy policies. It is composed of former regulators, who leverage their expertise with advocates to promote sustainable low-carbon power sector development in the U.S., China, India, Europe, and Latin America. In Europe, their focus is developing power markets that reward emission-free generation. In China, they are key advisors to our grantees and the government on reforming how clean power is brought onto the grid; and in India, they are working with regulators and grantees to reduce emissions and increase energy access.

for general operating support  
The Regulatory Assistance Project (RAP) focuses on key policy areas to drive a more efficient and equitable decarbonized energy future and to ensure a sustainable and just transition. RAP develops solutions to the questions that regulators and other public, private, and non-government organization decision makers are asking (or should be asking), working to change the narrative and leverage partnerships to accelerate change. RAP’s four policy areas are (a) faster electrification of buildings and transportation, (b) faster phaseouts of gas infrastructure, (c) removing barriers to distributed energy, and (d) decarbonizing the electric grid. Across these four areas, RAP provides decision makers in the power sector with global best practices — and the expertise to implement them. (Substrategy: Electrification)
