Buy-ins to Energy Cooperative Agreements
During the November 2009 partnership ex-change visit of Pennsylvania Utility Regulatory Commission to ERO, commissioners discuss elements of the electricity tariff setting process.


Partnerships and peer-to-peer exchanges between the Energy Regulatory Office (ERO) and U.S. regulatory commissions facilitate the exchange of information, data, and best practices among regulators.

National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners (NARUC)

NARUC works with ERO board members and staff to share best practices in the effective operation of a regulatory commission and its day-to-day management. This is achieved through activities that promote sound commercial and regulatory practices in a market-based environment, as well as professional interactions among all stakeholders in Kosovo’s energy sector. The most recent partnership work included development of ERO’s processes for internal communications and its external communications strategy.

United States Energy Association (USEA)

Through this partnership program implemented by USEA, USAID seeks to strengthen Kosovo Energy Corporation (KEK) management and Kosovo’s energy sector in general through flexible training, exchanges, and technical assistance covering a variety of utility management areas. These include generation control to meet demand and development of high-level revitalization reports for power plants, as well as a review of new energy tariffs and their impact on energy generation. This mechanism was utilized to provide KEK with tools to assess Kosovo A power plant damages from the hydrogen unit explosion in June 2014, as well as a Winter 2014–2015 economic modelling of electricity supply options.
