Electricity Policy & Regulation
Electricity has acquired a more prominent role in the energy sector of European countries due to its versatility, environmental cleanliness (at the point of consumption) and main role in the digital society. Electricity is also at the forefront of the fight against climate change because of the availability of several and improving technologies for its generation out of renewable energy sources.
The Electricity Area at the Florence School of Regulation is a platform where academics, national regulators, representatives from European institutions, network companies and market players debate and exchange their views and practices about the most recent developments in the industry, its regulation and the broader European energy policy.
To be always at the frontier of knowledge and public debate, the Electricity Area develops applied research, innovative training and fosters policy dialogue on the most topical policy and regulatory issues in the electricity sector of Europe and beyond.
