Commission for Energy Regulation

The Commission for Energy Regulation (CER) is the independent body responsible for overseeing the liberalisation of Ireland's energy sector. The CER was initially established and granted regulatory powers over the electricity market under the Electricity Regulation Act, 1999. The enactment of the Gas (Interim) (Regulation) Act, 2002 expanded the CER's jurisdiction to include regulation of the natural gas market. The CER is working to ensure that consumers benefit from regulation and the introduction of competition in the energy sector.

The CER works with the individual energy agencies to provide reference and guidance on energy related matters.
