Regulatory Finance and Accounting
Incentive Regulation

The Brattle Group brings to its assignments an understanding of international practice in regulation of gas, electricity, and telecommunications. We help companies around the world to develop and implement innovative regulatory mechanisms and communicate their merits to regulators and other stakeholders. We support proposed regulatory frameworks through expert testimony.

These mechanisms include various forms of incentive or performance-based regulation, formula-based rates, and innovative tolls for the recovery of uncontrollable costs, capital expenditures, and the cost of environmental compliance. We assist utilities to review available alternative regulatory solutions to help develop, propose, and/or implement innovative incentive regulation plans.

We also have expertise in regulatory consulting strategy, utility capital and operating expenditures, key financial issues affecting regulated utilities, cost of capital, regulatory accounting practices and processes, and quality of service issues.
