Proactive Regulatory Management

Clear Rules

In 2019 we structured this Regulation Department as a latent need in our company, since the electric energy and natural gas utilities businesses in which we participate are regulated in each of the countries in which we operate.

Why is it important?

(103-1) The States have clear rules in the provision of public services seeking efficient, continuous, quality service under schemes of freedom of access and competition. In this sense, for Grupo Energía Bogotá, regulatory management is of great importance, as it seeks to comply with standards and regulations, as well as to manage actions aimed at enabling favorable institutional environments for the development of our affiliates' businesses and guaranteeing a profitable and sustainable business.

To that end, we created the Regulation Department, which has the following goals:

  • To achieve the maintenance and improvement of the GEB's income derived from the regulated activities of its affiliates, and feasibility to new income.
  • To prioritize the Group's regulatory agenda in accordance with the Corporate Strategic Plan and to implement structured and effective regulatory management.
  • Contribute to the consolidation of an institutional and regulatory environment favorable to the development of businesses and projects.

How we manage it?

  • We coordinate the sectoral agenda of the Group and its affiliates in Colombia.

  • TGI has carried out specific studies in order to propose changes to the compensation methodology for the transport of natural gas in Colombia.
