Establishing appropriate institutional architecture is important to integrate power systems across borders and facilitate electricity trading, as even if the necessary infrastructure is in place, it does not automatically follow that it is being used to exchange power effectively. The co‑ordination of all stakeholders – governments, utilities and regulators – is required within jurisdictions, as is the creation of regional entities to support and oversee the integration process.
This report therefore examines stakeholder roles at different stages of cross-border integration to enable multilateral power trade. As energy regulators are the main audience, the report focuses on their roles and responsibilities after briefly addressing those of governments and utilities.
