The electric marketplace is changing rapidly as competition takes hold, not only in the United States, but also worldwide. This paper explores the evolving role of evaluators and regulaors in New York State. Over the past four years, evaluation has proven an important source of reliable and unbiased research for helping guide policies to enhance the transition to the new era of retail competition. We will explore the regulatory evaluation framework with real world examples of how evaluation is used in New York to monitor and benchmark retail competition, guide regulatory decisions, and strengthen the State's environmental disclosure program.
