Regulation of Energy in Portuguese Speaking Countries
The third Annual RELOP Conference took place in Rio de Janeiro, on the 4th of November 2010. There, the regulation of energy in Portuguese Speaking Countries was discussed.
The meeting was made of a series of interventions which focused on very specific topics, related to relevant problems to some of RELOP members. Namely, non-technical losses (also known as theft), the articulation between financing and concession mechanisms and other topics related to transmission and distribution of electric energy or the Brazilian Program “Light for Everybody”, which is a big success of Brazilian energy policy, and a great example for other RELOP countries.
It must also be underlined that other themes related to fuels (the regulation of biofuels, distribution of LPG, “Pré-Sal”) gained prominence in this edition.
We had the privilege to gather speakers with very distinct points of view, which contributed to a fruitful debate. Active operators in markets of varying levels of maturity, analysts, and renowned academics participated in the conference, which allowed to deepen the debate and make our regulatory models more consistent.
