In accordance with the Order of the Ministry of Energy of the Republic of Kazakhstan dated July 8, 2016 No. 305, the Association was determined by the Council of the Electric Energy and Capacity Market. The Market Council performs the following functions: monitors the functioning of the electric energy and capacity market, reviews investment programs, submits to the authorized body an expert opinion on the draft forecast balance of electric energy and capacity for the upcoming seven-year period, makes proposals to the authorized body to improve legislation in the field of electric power, performs other functions defined by the authorized body.

The CEA also plays a connecting role in the dialogue between industry representatives and government agencies. To this end, the Association signed Memorandums of Cooperation with various government agencies.  The Association is accredited in expert councils for the examination of regulatory legal acts under a number of state bodies and the National Chamber of Entrepreneurs of the Republic of Kazakhstan (NCE). Also, representatives of the CEA participate in the work of various working groups of the Parliament of the Republic of Kazakhstan, state bodies and NCE.
