World Forum on Energy Regulation (WFER)

The World Forum on Energy Regulation (WFER) is the main international conference on energy regulation and takes place every three years. The WFER assembles key players in the energy industry, high-level decision makers, academics, and regulators from across the globe to engage in strategic energy discussions on different regulatory schemes.

The Forum is held within the framework of the International Confederation of Energy Regulators (ICER), a voluntary framework for cooperation among energy regulators, which aims to help improve the design and implementation of public policies in the energy sector by exchanging information and best practices.

The last World Forum on Energy Regulation (WFER VIII) took place in Lima, Peru on March 21-24, 2023.

The next WFER will take place in 2026 in Tbilisi, Georgia and will be hosted by CEER observer the Georgian National Energy and Water Supply Regulatory Commission (GNERC).
