Policy Messages from the ISGAN Regulatory Sandbox 2.0 Project

ISGAN is leading an international collaboration project to capture recent developments and support countries in their development of regulatory experimenting such as sandboxes, which are key to enable up-scaling and deployment of smart grid and wider energy system innovation.

Building upon the successes of the first ISGAN initiative on the topic in 2019, the project has resulted in four key Policy Messages to the Clean Energy Ministerial and the wider international energy community. The project was selected to share these results as an official On Demand Side Event of the 12th Clean Energy Ministerial meeting, hosted by Chile.

The Policy Messages have been co-created by experts and practitioners from ministries, regulatory bodies and research institutions in 15 countries on 3 continents through a unique knowledge sharing process combining international knowledge exchange workshops with stakeholder dialogue at national level.

The focus questions that guided the international dialogue included: how sandbox programmes can be integrated into longer term energy transition strategies; the legal preconditions and exemption laws to enable sandbox programmes; how to coordinate between different stakeholders in programme implementation, and how to design evaluation processes for policy learning.
