Depiction of Utility regulation and finance: Principles of economic regulation

Utility regulation and finance: Principles of economic regulation

We have now reached full capacity for the course. Please contact [email protected] to enquire about our future utility regulation and finance courses.

Over the course of more than 40 years, Oxera has developed and run training courses to help companies, regulators, investors, policymakers and lawyers to develop their knowledge of economic regulation and understand the key building blocks of a price review.

The decisions that economic regulators make shape the revenues that companies can earn, expectations around company performance and the scope to generate returns for shareholders. For regulators and policymakers, getting economic regulation is critical to protecting consumers, ensuring the right outcomes are delivered and securing value for money. For companies, and their investors and legal advisers, economic regulation can be a key value driver for the business.

This course will cover the following:

  • Why infrastructure networks are subject to economic regulation
  • How economic regulators set price caps for regulated companies
  • How efficient costs are determined
  • How the cost of capital is calculated
  • How regulators monitor and incentivise delivery
  • What this all means for regulated industries

Regardless of which side of the table you sit on, a strong understanding of the theory and practice of economic regulation can help you to make a positive difference for your organisation and for society.

Whether you are directly involved in developing regulatory submissions or simply interested in gaining a better understanding of how regulation affects your organisation, you will come away from this course with a comprehensive grounding in the principles of economic regulation and how it is applied in practice.

Our course leaders enjoy sharing their expertise, underpinning their teaching with examples from their experience and case studies to bring the technical concepts to life.
