Get help launching your energy business idea

The Toolkit can help you understand energy regulation, explore options to launch your energy business under current frameworks, and get clear guidance. You can now apply for proof-of-concept trials offering relief from specific energy regulations through time-limited waivers and trial rule changes. It's never too early to get free help. We can help you with projects and ideas at any stage.
