[DRAFT #3] Ensuring Electric Utility Reliability

Postby Clever Homo Sapiens » Sun Apr 25, 2021 4:56 pm

This is the third draft of the proposal. Changes include a narrower scope (focusing on electric utilities, rather than energy utilities in general), with a change in the title and vocabulary to reflect this, the establishment of a commission (as the previous version of this draft was submitted and was marked as a violation of the House of Cards rule by GenSec, which I believe this will take care of), the addition of another responsibility for the commission (begins with "establishing mandatory procedures through which electric service is preserved"), the removal of a responsibility (starting with having to do with utility rates, which is besides the point of this proposal) and an attempt to reduce the verbosity of the proposal. As always, all feedback is welcome.

Title: Ensuring Electric Utility Reliability
Category: Regulation
Area of Effect: Energy

The World Assembly,

Noting that multiple entities take responsibility for the generation, delivery and sale of electricity to consumers and essential industries globally, regulatory policy plays an instrumental role in ensuring the reliability of these entities’ services, and that such policies vary between nations, being nonexistent in some,

Concerned by the potential of electric disruptions in one nation to spread internationally and hinder global economic development,

Alarmed at the fact that there currently exists no WA organization involved in the regulation of electricity, for reasons previously mentioned, and

Wishing to rectify this precarious situation,

Defines, for the purposes of this resolution, an electric utility as an entity which engages in the generation, delivery to the premises of, electricity to end consumers (i.e. those which utilize the electricity, without its resale) as a public service (i.e. with the intent of supplying electricity to all within their service area),

Establishes the World Assembly Electricity Commission (WAEC), and tasks it with the following:

    1. establishing mandatory procedures through which electric service is preserved and restored to the greatest possible extent during and following a disruption in service, including the designation of entities to be prioritized in that regard (hospitals, governmental agencies, food storage and processing facilities, and other essential entities),

    2. setting minimum design, construction, and equipment standards for infrastructure essential to energy utilities, including, but not limited to:

      a. major conveyances of electricity (such as transmission and distribution lines), and

      b. generators of electricity (such as power plants and energy “farms”),

    3. establishing mandatory procedures through which the above infrastructure is dismantled and/or repurposed after it can no longer be safely and efficiently utilized for its intended purpose(s), and

    4. establishing a standardized method through which electric utilities provide crucial information pertaining to their operation (utility rates, revenue, expenses, profits or losses, generation and/or transmission statistics, etc) to the WAEC, on an annual basis, to better inform regulatory policy,

Requires that all member nations enforce the regulations set forth by the WAEC, doing so in the manner they find most effective, and in the event that a member nation does not,

    1. the WAEC shall fine them in proportion to the estimated economic impact of their failure(s) of enforcement, unless it is due to a genuine, demonstrable lack of administrative capabilities, and

    2. if their failure(s) of enforcement are due to a genuine, demonstrable lack of administrative capabilities, the WAEC shall grant them with financial support equivalent to the cost of to developing these capabilities within a reasonable time, and once they have, immediately begin enforcement of the relevant regulations, subject to the penalties stated above.

Title: Ensuring Energy Utility Reliability
Category: Regulation
Area of Effect: Energy

The World Assembly,

Noting that multiple entities take responsibility for the generation, delivery and sale of energy sources to consumers and industries globally (herein referred to as energy utilities), and that regulations concerning energy utilities vary between nations,

Acknowledging the fact that energy utilities are increasingly internationally integrated,

Concerned about the potential of energy utility disruptions in one nation to spread and cause disruptions internationally, hindering global economic development,

Recognizing that responsible, evidence-driven regulatory policies of energy utilities, and their suppliers, has an instrumental key role in the prevention and minimization of the economic, environmental, and other effects of these disruptions,

Alarmed that certain WA organizations involved with the regulation of energy utilities were (re)founded with policies either limited solely to non-utility activities (such as the NESC, through GAR #263), or policies which only regulate one aspect of energy utilities (such as the SaLDA, through GAR #298),

Defines, for the purposes of this resolution,

    1. An energy source as anything which can have useful energy (an umbrella term for all physical forces needed to perform work on and/or heat tangible objects), derived from it, through means of a conversion to another form (such as through combustion, nuclear fusion and fission, photovoltaic and other electromagnetic processes, and so on), except it is intended for consumption by a biological being or beings, and

    2. An energy utility as an entity which engages in the generation, delivery to the premises of, and/or sale of a energy source or sources to end consumers (those which utilize the energy source(s), without its/their resale) as a public service (i.e. with the intent of supplying said source(s) to all within their service area),

Tasks WA organizations which are or were involved in energy utility regulation with performing the following, subject to their jurisdiction:

    1. setting the maximum return on investment and rates charged on utility providers’ distribution, production, and sale of energy sources, and annually conduct and publish research into the economic impact of current returns and rates, in comparison to both higher and lower ones,

    2. setting minimum design and equipment standards for infrastructure essential to energy utilities, including, but not limited to:

      a. major conveyances of energy sources (pipelines, railways, roads, tanker trucks, train cars, transmission and distribution lines, etc), and

      b. generators and/or extractors of major energy sources (power plants/energy “farms”, wells, mines, etc),

    3. establishing mandatory procedures through which the above infrastructure is dismantled and/or repurposed after it can no longer be safely and efficiently utilized for its intended purpose(s), and annually conduct and publish research into how these procedures can be made less environmentally disruptive,

    4. collaborating to establish a standardized method through which energy utilities provide crucial information pertaining to their operation (utility rates, revenue, expenses, profits or losses, generation and/or transmission statistics, the extent and condition of their infrastructure, etc) to the relevant WA organization(s), on an annual basis, to better inform regulatory policy,

Requires that all member nations enforce the regulations set forth by the WA organizations mentioned above, with each member nation being free to do so in the manner they find most effective, and in the event they do not,

    1. allow the relevant WA organization(s) to fine them in proportion to the estimated economic impact of their failure(s) of enforcement, unless it is due to a genuine, demonstratable lack of administrative capabilities,

    2. if their failure(s) of enforcement are due to a genuine, demonstrable lack of administrative capabilities, the above WA organization(s) shall grant them with financial support equivalent to the cost of to developing these capabilities within a reasonable time, and once they have, immediately begin enforcement of the relevant regulations, subject to the penalties stated above.

    3. establishing procedures through which the above infrastructure is dismantled/repurposed, and requiring that it is, after it no longer can be used for its intended purpose (demolition of generation and processing facilities, and the handling of resulting toxic and/or radioactive refuse, etc),

Requires that all member nations enforce the regulations set forth by the WA organizations mentioned above, with each member nation being free to do so in the manner they find most effective, and in the event they do not,

Title: Minimizing Energy Disruptions Via Uniform Regulation
Category: Regulation
Area of Effect: Energy

The World Assembly,

Noting that multiple nations contribute to the production and distribution of energy sources, and that regulations concerning energy sources vary between nations,

Acknowledging the fact that energy markets are increasingly internationally integrated,

Concerned about the potential of energy market disruptions in one nation to spread and cause disruptions internationally, hindering global economic development,

Recognizing that responsible, evidence-driven regulatory policies play a key role in the prevention and minimization of effects of these disruptions,

Defines, for the purposes of this resolution,

    1. Energy sources as anything which can have useful energy (an umbrella term for all physical forces needed to perform work on and/or heat tangible objects), derived from it, through means of a conversion to another form (such as through combustion, nuclear fusion and fission, photovoltaic and other electromagnetic processes, and so on), and

    2. Energy markets as a collection of commodity markets over which energy sources are bought and sold,

Establishes the World Assembly Energy Council (WAEC), which shall:

    1. Foster cooperation between, set primary regulatory policy for, and enforce regulations through existing WA organizations involved in the production, distribution, and utilization of energy sources and/or energy markets, such as the World Assembly Oil Transportation Committee (WAOTC) and Nuclear Energy Safety Commission (NESC). The WAEC will regulate energy sources and markets, ensuring the minimization of disruptions and maximization of economic development through:

      a. setting the maximum return on investment and rates charged (as a percentage) on utility providers’ distribution, production, and sale of energy sources, and annually conduct and publish research into the economic effect of current and proposed returns and rates, in comparison to both higher and lower ones,

      b. setting minimum design and equipment standards for infrastructure essential to energy markets, including, but not limited to:

        i. major conveyances of energy sources (pipelines, railways, roads, tanker trucks, train cars, transmission and distribution lines, etc),

        ii. generators and/or extractors of major energy sources (power plants/energy “farms”, wells, mines, etc),

      c. establishing procedures through which the above infrastructure is dismantled/repurposed, and requiring that it is, after it no longer can be used for its intended purpose (capping wells, environmental reclamation of mines, demolition of generation and processing facilities and the handling of resulting toxic and/or radioactive refuse, etc),

      d. cooperating, and actively collaborating with WA and member nations’ financial regulators and investigators in order to expose and penalize instances and perpetrators of fraud, anti- competitive practices, and other activities detrimental to the functioning of efficient and transparent energy markets, and annually conducting and publishing research into the economic effect of these activities and how they can be better prevented, and

      e. fine entities which are found to be in violation and/or perpetrating violations of the above regulations in proportion to estimated negative economic impact of their violations, and allocate revenues collected from these fines towards the purposes stated below,

    2. Streamline regulatory processes, and by extension, reduce the inefficiencies and other externalities of redundant, and occasionally contradictory, regulations on the national level, by providing monetary compensation to each member nation which brings their regulatory policies and legislation in line with that of the WAEC, which shall be at least equal to the costs of doing so, including, but not limited to,

      a. administrative (enforcement, regulatory reform, etc.) expenses, and

      b. expenses associated with reforming or otherwise updating energy infrastructure and markets to bring it/them into compliance.

Well, no one was replying, and I knew you all would be mildly infuriated. I apologize for drawing your attention in this way, but I already withdrew my proposal. Now that I have your attention, let's hear your thoughts!

A word of advice from someone who once made the same mistake as you did, 24 hours is not a feedback drought. It takes people time to see stuff as well as write in-depth feedback. I will do so soon if no one else will. That's one of the problems with a long proposal, ain't nobody got time for that.

Thank you for the insight. It is nice to see that there are others out there who were once as impatient as I was in this case. For proposals of this length, how long is a reasonable time to wait?

For drafting, I'd say about a week and a half.

Probably a couple months. When people tell you it's looking good, after a while drafting, you'll have a better idea of when to submit. In reality there's no way to know the answer to that question.

Also, I would not listen to what Traden just said, and many GA regulars will back me on that.

This violates the Committees rule, which requires that resolutions require some sort of action by member states, rather than just creating committees. I recommend considering whether this committee is necessary to the policies you want the WA to enforce.
In the meantime you are here, and it’s beautiful, and escaping isn’t always something bad.

My input on the time question is that it depends. Don't rush it and bring it to last call too soon, but you shouldn't necessarily always wait several months before submission.

Once you've met all the big concerns of people, people raising questions about small things has slowed, and generally, people are content with your proposal, that is when you submit.

As to the thing on 'how long to wait'. There are no hard and fast rules. If you know what you are doing, I would say don't bother waiting if you don't need to. If you have no idea what you're doing, it may behove you to wait longer. Feedback depends on interest. People will naturally be more drawn towards issues that matter to them. Popular issues (abortion, death penalty, slavery, etc) always get more feedback than less popular ones. Connected to that is differing levels of willingness to give meaningful feedback: sometimes you'll run into someone who will spot an illegality, say they see it, then refuse steadfastly to tell you it until you campaign and submit.

I would recommend asking people directly to provide feedback, but this too doesn't always work. People are busy or might not be altogether interested in whatever topic you are writing on. And on the rules, sometimes the metagame is more interesting than the game itself. Just some thoughts.

I disagree. There are nations which share power with each others' grids (I think that one can actually get a banner for "[outsourcing] national power generation", called "Live Wire", if I am not mistaken). However, I see how you could have come to this conclusion, so should I change the language of the proposal to only include those nations which have grids with international connections?

Transfer of energy over a grid shared between two nations would be managed under the contracts signed between those nations. A resolution still wouldn't be necessary. A grid is so large an infrastructure project that its integration etc would entail working out details on reliability between the members affected regardless.

A good point... but I guess it wouldn't hurt to submit it, and see what happens.

If people tell you the draft isn't ready or viable, I would suggest you don't submit it.
