This year will mark the 10th year of the collaboration between the FSR Energy Union Law Area and Bundesnetzagentur, the Germany regulatory authority. The forum brings together academics, institutional and NRA representatives, policy-makers and market players to discuss the latest energy issues facing national regulatory authorities, from both a legal and economic perspective.
This year, the programme will provide an update on the Clean Energy Package and consider the positions of stakeholders on the implementation of the provisions before looking at the issues surrounding interconnections, focusing on amendments to the gas directive, the TPA exemptions, and cross-border participation in capacity remuneration mechanisms. The debate will then turn to energy and digitalisation for a session in which we will examine the myriad issues posed by the rapid developments and innovations in the field. We will consider the changing role of distribution system operators (DSOs) and transmission system operators (TSOs), data management in smart grids, the role of aggregators, e-mobility, and the new issues surrounding the energy customer – data protection and energy regulation in terms of smart meters, the development of local energy communities, and the position of the energy consumer in this new digitalised energy world.
