Knowledge Exchange on Experimental (Regulatory) Sandboxes to Enable Smart Grid Deployment

Experimental (Regulatory) Sandboxes for Smart Grid Transitions has been the focus for a major ISGAN inter-Annex knowledge exchange initiative in partnership with the International Confederation of Energy Regulators (ICER), with the purpose of identifying key lessons learned and examples of good practice in regard to the design and implementation of such innovative policy instruments. The project was led by an international team of ISGAN experts and involved about 45 participants from more than 20 countries.

The project was part of a broader scope of activities ISGAN is undertaking along with partner organizations to advance international dialogue around good practices and new approaches for innovative market and power system design needed to catalyze smart grid investments.

The ISGAN Sandbox initiative included a number of mutually supporting activities, all designed to support capacity building, share international experiences and co-create ideas in regard to this relatively new but key topic for the future energy systems and smart grid community. The initiative built on the successful ISGAN Knowledge Transfer Project approach and involved a major interactive knowledge sharing workshop, held during the Stockholm Smart Grid week, in conjunction with the 17th ISGAN Executive Committee Meeting.

An ISGAN Academy Webinar is arranged on June 12th, 15.00 (CEST) to share and discuss the results of the project further.

Key project results include (see downloads below):

  • ISGAN Policy Messages on Sandboxes to the Clean Energy Ministerial
  • ISGAN Casebook including examples from seven countries: “Innovative Regulatory Approaches with Focus on Experimental Sandboxes”
