“We forget just how painfully dim the world was before electricity. A candle, a good candle, provides barely a hundredth of the illumination of a single 100 watt light bulb.”
— Bill Bryson

Energy Law International advises state-owned utilities, Ministries, and Regulatory Authorities in emerging markets on energy market reforms and provide support to international financial institutions seeking to invest in emerging energy markets. Energy Law International's Julia Weller has more than 15 years of experience in helping countries around the globe make the transition from state-directed energy regulation to competition and international best practice.  She  brings to bear extensive experience in the energy sectors of Central and Eastern Europe, Central Asia, the Caucasus region, the Middle East, North Africa, and Sub-Saharan Africa.  Her experience includes drafting new laws and secondary legislation, setting up new energy regulatory authorities, providing gap analyses of existing legislation, and developing strategies, policies and road maps for reforms.   

Energy Law International, a woman-owned company, never takes a cookie-cutter approach to its work.  We take pride in understanding the cultural and economic conditions of each country to minimize social disruption and maximize benefits to energy consumers, while ensuring robust and efficiently operating electricity and natural gas markets. 

We work alone or side-by-side with other energy sector reform teams, including experts in electricity and gas market design, engineers, economists, change management specialists, tariff experts and regulatory advisers.  References can be provided upon request.
