Electric Distribution Loss is a problem in many countries, but some have managed to incentivize the distribution companies to combat these losses effectively. Thus, in order to broaden the debate on the topic, this article develops a mapping of different experiences in the regulatory treatment of distribution losses, focused on commercial losses. A comparison of experiences in 13 countries shows six major innovative approaches: individualized treatment, efficient company model, treatment based on companies’ similarity, specific treatment based on companies’ individual performance, and specific treatment for areas with high criminality.
