Energy utility industries in the United States and Canada, and the regulation of them, have changed dramatically in the past decade. This paper describes the forces driving regulatory change in the electricity and natural gas industries and considers the roles of demand-side management and integrated resource planning. The issues involved in defining an appropriate role for the regulator are discussed and possible future developments in energy regulation are suggested.
