An insider look at the online course on the regulation of the power sector
Our flagship course celebrates its 10th Anniversary
Our first online course on the regulation of the power sector celebrates its 10th anniversary.
You may not remember it, but the FSR kickstarted its online school with this fundamental course based on the book by Ignacio Perez-Arriaga (MIT) and on the partnership with Comillas University.
In its long and successful story, this course trained 850 energy scholars and professionals on the fundamentals of power sector regulation.
Today, the fully updated 10th edition directed by Carlos Batlle proposes a new syllabus and rethinks its activities to address the current regulatory challenges and equip our participants with the knowledge, know-how, and mindset to deal with any issues at stake today. For the same reason, the core video-lectures have been updated and extended, while the new format of live sessions will boost interaction and collaborative knowledge.
Take the journey with us!

Power system regulation is never at a rest, and this is particularly true for the power systems of today, facing the covid crisis while addressing the challenges of decarbonization to fight climate change and ensure clean energy for all.
In a world that is hungry for a reliable supply of electricity, regulation, and reform of the power sector become the drivers for economic development. Several countries across the world have implemented energy sector reforms to improve their economic performances.
In this course, we will explore:
- REGULATORY MODELS FOR ENERGY SYSTEMS
- FUNDAMENTALS OF ENERGY SYSTEMS ECONOMICS
- COST ALLOCATION METHODOLOGIES
- WHOLESALE ELECTRICITY GENERATION
- . ELECTRICITY NETWORKS
- END-USER ENERGY PRICING
- REGULATORY AUTHORITIES
The goal of this course is to share good regulatory practices around the globe.
At the end of this course, participants will gain extensive knowledge of the fundamental principles of the regulation of the power sector through theory and practice, learning from International leaders, former regulators, leading academics and industry specialists, and practitioners.

What’s new in this 10th edition
Carlos Batlle, Course Director: This edition takes a global perspective. Regulatory challenges are the same all over the world, that’s why we bring the lessons learned in different contexts, countries, jurisdictions. So we welcome participants from every country in the world, from India to Australia, from South Africa to Canada, to bring in their concerns, questions, and contributions. In the live sessions, you will have a chance to interact with leading experts from across the world who will bring you the latest hot ideas in the power sector.
Chiara Canestrini and Daniela Bernardo, Course Coordinators: This course made the history of our online school and its first success. We had the pleasure to contribute to this training from the first edition and to welcome 850 participants from 40 countries since then. The experience cumulated in nine editions is now condensed in this new-generation course, which benefits from the best practices and tools achieved in 8 years of digital learning at the FSR.
Testimonials from our Alumni
This online course is the most innovative and efficient crash course on power I have seen!
Andris Piebalgs, Former Energy Commissioner: I really loved the online course on Regulation of Power Sector. It helps by going into the depths of power sector regulation. It was serious, interactive and involved a lot of independent research. I enjoyed the live classes at the end of each chapter. I can recommend this course for all interested in power system management.
Although fully online, this course is supported by a dedicated team, and I could find personalized follow-up and helpful explanations when I most
needed them. This was valuable input in addition to all videos, quizzes and teaching materials available during the course.
