During the Annual Training, you will gain extensive knowledge of the fundamental principles of the regulation of the power and gas sectors through theory and practice, learning from European leaders, former regulators, leading academics and industry specialists and practitioners.
After this nine-month online course, you will be equipped to take adequate positions on competition, the integration of markets and networks, quality of service, economic efficiency, and security of supply, with the ultimate goal of protecting the interests of consumers and the better integration of market participants and networks into a common European energy market.
Every other week, you will have the chance to discuss and learn from a different instructor via two interactive live classes, a Q&A session, and a master class led by a leading expert (around 35 live sessions in total). To ensure you have close and personalised interaction with the instructors, this online course will have a limit of 30 participants.
The training is structured around three blocks: an initial block will review the regulatory fundamentals; Block II is the core of the course, in which the key issues are analysed and participants are asked to contribute with their own analyses; Block III gathers a series of live discussions on the hottest energy regulation topics.
Block 0: Basics on Energy Systems (5 – 23 October 2020)
Selected readings will be available, describing how energy systems are operated and managed.
How do energy (power and gas) systems manage to provide end-users with energy supply continuously with an adequate quality of service, at an affordable price and with an acceptable environmental impact
Block I: Theory and Principles of Regulation (26 October – 17 November 2020)
Three introductory modules (one-week long) to review the fundamentals of regulatory practice needed to delve into the subsequent study of the regulation of the different energy activities.
The modules consist of two interactive lectures at the start of the week. In the lecture, updated and selected support material is offered to the participants, so they can improve or consolidate their knowledge.
Block II: Regulation of Energy Supply Activities (26 November – 16 May 2021)
A six-month online and fully interactive course during which energy regulatory principles and case studies are studied together in-depth in a well-structured, flexible e-learning environment that features live lectures and discussions with the course instructors and participants.
Block III: final webinar series: Current Regulatory Key Discussion (14 – 21 June 2021)
Three live sessions, devoted to the discussion of case studies and the presentation of other topics of specific interest to the course participants. A final one-day panel on energy and sustainability, which marks the end of the course with the awarding of diplomas to participants.
What you will learn:
The course is given in English and developed for:
No formal background on energy regulation is required. An educational background in engineering, economics, or law is strongly recommended.
The course is designed for a global audience and the times of the live classes can be adjusted.
The training is led by Prof. Pérez Arriaga (Honorary Course Director) and Carlos Batlle, who have been teaching the course “Engineering, Economics and Regulation of the Electric Power Sector” at MIT for the last ten years. They are supported by a group of leading experts in the field, who will channel their rich knowledge into interactive lectures, case studies, and live webinars.
The registration fee is 4,700 EUR.
The most comprehensive training on the regulation of the energy sector In Europe. Developed by regulators specifically for National Regulatory Authorities and the regulatory affairs departments of energy companies.
I greatly enjoyed the chance to meet with, and interact with, so many people from across Europe and beyond, with a range of experiences. I think having the opportunity to do this as a newcomer to the regulatory world is incredibly valuable. Participants and instructors were very welcoming, both during the course sessions and also on the social side.
I would say that the course is perfectly balanced. The contents are very well explained and the chances to share our experiences and knowledge with "colleagues" from all over the world have no price!
I have really enjoyed the course and the topics. It has been super getting to know my new colleagues and share perspectives on how they do things in their countries.
Course Instructors are extremely knowledgeable and experienced. And able to explain complicated subjects thoroughly.
