    • The report covers national and international practices in such regards building on the outcomes of RRC 1. The report is expected to serve as a draft set of regulations that may be adopted, after appropriate modifications, by the ERCs for implementing a regulatory framework in such regards within their own areas of jurisdiction.

  • Online Discussion Forum (ODF)

    The Centre’s Online Discussion Forum (ODF) is an initiative to facilitate an online platform for exchanging knowledge, ideas and data among energy sector professionals and academicians. The forum is accessible after registration at the CER web portal. New topics and threads across a number of categories can be created on the forum after due approval of the administrator. In the near future, it is intended to model the forum as a mobile application (android based) for availing hassle free access to the ODF. The Centre’s web portal and ODF keeps users abreast with the outputs and activities of the Centre. Presently it covers the updates and archives of the following:

    • CER news and publications, events and newsletters releases
    • Comments and discussion points on recent policy documents, reports, drafts, amendments, etc
  • Regulatory Skill Mapping (RSM)

    The objective of this initiative is to design the Centre’s activities and deliver a more relevant output by engaging various stakeholders. Registration for RSM is automatically carried out when users create their login credentials for the first time on ODF.

    • Personnel from Electricity Regulatory Commissions (ERCs), utilities, academia and Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) are invited for registration on Centre’s ODF for RSM.
    • Skill mapping of registered participants is performed based on information provided by them during registration and their historical academic/ industrial background etc. A bifurcation on the basis of area of expertise and research interests is carried out as soon a new user is registered at the portal.
