Structural Regulation

Utility assets in many sectors are coming under increasing structural regulatory pressure - pressure to deliver increasing service quality , and pressure to give effect to government policies. These bite into profits that are already under pressure.

Utility Consultants can provide regulatory advice in the following areas....

Regulatory regime analysis

- Analysis of the impact of structural regulations (such as the Distributed Generation requirements in New Zealand).

- Identification of business opportunities that arise from structural regulation (such as the ability of Lines Businesses to re-enter generation and retailing).

Regulatory regime compliance

- Developing response strategies to ensure compliance.

- Incorporating these strategies into asset management and operational plans.
