Ratemaking and Regulatory Policy

The Brattle Group has expertise in ratemaking and regulatory policy issues at both federal and state/provincial levels. Our experience includes all aspects of traditional cost of service analysis as well as incentive regulation, negotiated rates, and market-based rates. We understand the practical details of regulatory accounting and issues surrounding adequate investor returns, appropriate price signals, proper rate design, and the need for economic efficiency. We provide economic analysis of regulatory issues in industry restructuring, access, prudence, and stranded cost recovery.
