CEG has extensive experience across the globe in supporting regulated companies and their legal advisors to inform decisions and to formulate and present economic arguments and evidence during regulatory proceedings, public consultations, market investigations and court hearings. Likewise, CEG provides support for regulators and authorities in defining optimal regulatory policies, set allowances and tariffs and design incentives by applying a vast set of economic analysis tools.

Our expertise spans a wide range of regulatory matters including regulatory policy design and reform, market analysis and impact assessments, access and non-discrimination issues, price and tariff setting, including cost and efficiency analysis and cost of capital estimation, as well as auction strategy and design.

Using economic theory and quantitative techniques, our economists prepare expert reports, provide input into client submissions, advise on strategy and public policy, and provide testimony before regulatory agencies, courts and arbitral tribunals.
