We are keen to have the participation of the following stakeholders:
· National Regulatory Authorities (NRAs) for electricity and gas
· New Entrants. By new entrants, we are referring to retail market entrants, including:
a. Independent electricity: Suppliers of electricity and /or gas which do not have any incumbent (by default) customers and are not owned by a presently or formerly incumbent energy company. These are essentially independent suppliers which have organically grown their entire customer base and can also include suppliers which have not yet, but plan to, or are considering entering a given market. Suppliers which have supplemented their customer base through M&A activities are also included in this category, as long as they fulfil the other criteria of this category.
b. Trans-State Suppliers: Suppliers of Electricity and /or Gas suppliers from one state (country) who have entered or have seriously considered entering another state electricity or gas retail market by means of organic customer growth (not only through M&A).
c. Trans-Market Suppliers: Suppliers from other markets (such as telco) who have or have seriously considered entering a given state market as a supplier of electricity or gas.
d. New Model entrants: Independent demand-side aggregators, ESCOs, community energy companies other new model businesses which provide services to consumers in the retail electricity and gas market.
