The International Confederation of Energy Regulators (ICER), a voluntary framework for cooperation among electricity and gas regulators globally, are calling for papers for the Distinguished Scholar Awards.

ICER’s aim is to improve public and policy-maker awareness and understanding of energy regulation and its role in addressing a range of socio-economic, environmental and market issues.

ICER has established its Distinguished Scholar Awards to increase the thinking around energy regulation policy issues. These Awards acknowledge important contributions to enhancements in electricity and gas regulation around the world.

ICER will select two recipients for the Distinguished Scholar Award based on the following two categories:

1.    Impact on developing countries

2.     “next” practices

The successful candidates (only one for co-authored papers) will need to attend WFER VI to receive their award and to present their paper. Expenses for attendance will be reimbursed by ICER. All candidate papers must be submitted no later than 1 April 2014.

Papers and submission form should be submitted to the following address:
