The Accelerator is an initiative to enhance the capacity of regulators to increase the speed of the clean energy transitions.
It works directly with energy regulators in order to facilitate knowledge sharing, peer to peer learning and thought leadership on regulatory issues. It acts as well as a central resource for regulators to seek knowledge products and regulatory tools that can help mitigate challenges regulators face when trying to regulate for the sustainable, affordable and secure energy systems of the future.
The Accelerator was launched at COP26 by Ofgem, IEA, IRENA, RMI, RAP, Energy Innovation and the World Bank along with regulators from around the world as part of the Green Grids Initiative.
The Accelerator is intended to enhance the capacity of energy regulators to contribute to decarbonisation of energy systems effectively, swiftly, and fairly through enhancing exchanges and
communicating best practices. The goal of RETA is to accelerate:
Flexible, renewable-based systems
Network Planning for wide scale electrification
Regulatory frameworks to deliver the energy transition
A fair and inclusive energy transition
