Moderator, University of Alberta Associate Professor, Andrew Leach: We're interested in the question of, how can regulators address the ongoing impact on consumers from market transition, disruption, and innovation? We're looking a little bit more at the social impacts of these changes we're seeing in our utility markets.
Chair, National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners, Paul Kjellander: NARUC was described as a sister organization. We're about a hundred and thirty years old. For most of that time, utility regulation and utilities we regulated looked much the same across the country.
