Renovate Best Regulatory Practice “Toolkit” Series: Performance-Based Regulation – Part 3

  • Practical guidance for regulators looking to address challenges of the changing electricity
  • Curated practices and processes that can be adapted to all regulatory markets.

The Evolution of Performance-Based Regulation: A Model From A Traditional, Vertically Integrated Market

When thinking about the application of performance-based regulation (PBR), most overlook traditional, vertically integrated markets like Minnesota. In this three-part series, SEPA dives into a case study of Minnesota’s proactive, stakeholder-driven process. Minnesota’s experience shows how a conversation about PBR does not require regulators and stakeholders to abandon existing cost-of-service-regulation (COSR) ratemaking practices.
This series gives regulators and their staff a roadmap that may inform how they proceed with performance-based regulation in their own jurisdiction.

What Is Covered In Part 3

  • Taking the next step to integrate multi-year rate plans (MRP) and performance incentive mechanisms (PIM) to reach performance-based regulation (PBR).
  • The need to take stakeholder collaborative outcomes into a regulatory environment to achieve your objectives.
