Castlerock Consulting

Examples of our Institutional Development work in Energy include:

  • For the Philippines Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC), Castlerock helped prepare a new strategic plan for the organization, realigned the organizational structure and designed a human resource (HR) management system consistent with that plan, developed and implemented new IT tools to support key ERC functions, and provided training and opacity building on a range of regulatory matters.

  • For the Government of Indonesia, Castlerock designed an entire power sector regulatory agency, including organizational charts, job descriptions, and regulatory processes, and provided associated capacity building.

  • Also for the Government of Indonesia, we convened a workshop of stakeholders in geothermal power, including various ministries, the national utility, regional governments and industry representatives. It was the first time these disparate parties had been brought together. Through interactive group role-playing exercises regarding risk allocation in the project development cycle, Castlerock was able to catalyze a continuing policy and regulatory dialogue across the stakeholder community.

  • In Malaysia, Castlerock worked with the Government to prepare programs for multilateral funding for biomass power development as well as industrial energy efficiency using market-based mechanisms such as performance contracting, energy services companies, and commercial energy audit services.
