Regulatory Training Course for the National Utilities Regulatory Commission of St. Lucia
May 19 - 20, 2016
Gros Islet, St. Lucia
What is the role and responsibility of regulation? What are the tools that regulators use and how do they work? What are implications of and strategies for non-revenue water and electricity? These questions and others were covered in a two-day course for the National Utilities Regulatory Commission of St. Lucia (NURC). Participants included NURC Commissioners and staff, as well as representatives of LUCELEC (the incumbent electric utility in St. Lucia), ECERA, CARILEC, CAWASA, the Public Utilities Department, WASCO (the incumbent water utility in St. Lucia), and local stakeholders from the electricity industry. The participants engaged in discussions of the issues facing the electricity sector and the future of regulation in St.Lucia. The course was facilitated by PURC director of energy studies, Ted Kury and PURC senior fellow, Raj Barua.
