The Brattle Group provides consulting to clients on the provision of standard offer services and on the procurement of supplies for regulated services. We assist in designing and implementing demand response programs and forecasting customer loads and behavior in retail access environments. We advise on the design of transition periods and regulatory mechanisms that mitigate or avoid rate hikes, and we have helped clients to analyze re-regulation, vertical re-integration, and hybrid regulatory options in response to the actual or perceived failure of individual restructuring efforts.

Our experts have written a series of policy papers and tutorials on the retail access issue and have analyzed the causes and relative magnitude of retail price increases in restructured and non-restructured states.
