Technical Assistance to Develop a Roadmap for Regional Market Development in the Mekong Region (NARUC / ENR-DoS)

VIS has been commissioned by NARUC (assignment funded by the Bureau of Energy Resources (ENR) at the U.S. Department of State) to support the regulatory bodies in Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos as they work towards development of a regional electricity market. The study aims to assist all four countries in advancing from simple bilateral power trade to a functional regional power market. As part of the study, VIS will analyze current regulatory frameworks, identify regulatory and infrastructure gaps, and design a transition roadmap based on a set of recommendations informed by international best practices.
