The use of the combination of market based competition and well-structured regulation to improve efficiency and attract private sector capital has been adopted and re-interpreted very widely around the globe. Market developments and regulatory frameworks have continued to evolve to help Governments and policy makers to steer consumers and producers to adapt to climate change and address the continuing challenges of efficiency, access, affordability and security.
Gas & LNG
The introduction of competition and regulation also took hold of domestic gas markets, while the development of pipeline infrastructure and LNG transportation has made the gas supply market global. Governments and market players now have to balance the need to reduce emissions against the increasing demands from growing populations, increased energy use and energy producers transitioning away from coal. New market interventions and regulatory tools will be needed to deliver policy goals.
Renewables are the major element of the global response to energy driven climate change. They are acquiring a growing role in every country’s energy policy as public awareness and pressure grows to accelerate the move towards Net Zero.
Energy Driven Climate Change
MRC provides strategic advice on meeting the challenges presented by Climate Change in energy consumption and production.
MRC Group's district heating and district cooling expertise is primarily based in the Nordic market's district heating development and secondly on Eastern European and Central Asian projects.
Water & Sanitation
Within this sector we support companies in the implementation of incentive regulation and tariff setting. We have recently completed a study to identify the challenges of the water and sewage sector within a changing regulatory environment, the viability of the universal access, the design subsidy policies and the definition of performance indicators for water companies.
