The implementation of the EU Gas Network Codes (NC) requires an important effort from many participants of the market and sound competence and specialised resources.
Join us to gain comprehensive knowledge about the EU Gas Network Codes from the experts actively involved in their development – national TSOs and ENTSOG.
What you will learn:
As the European energy market is more and more interconnected, the accomplishment of EU-wide rules facilitating cross-border gas flows is increasingly important. On the basis of the third liberalisation package, the European Commission, ACER and ENTSOG were tasked with developing a unified set of rules concerning the integration of the gas market as well as system operation and development – the network codes (NCs).
Currently, European NCs and guidelines are near to being entirely implemented in all EU member states. They represent an important and unique achievement of setting rules for the internal energy market for which, at once, they form the pre-condition for harmonised rules for the market functioning, for system operation and for smooth transmition.
Their implementation requires an important effort from many participants of the market and – particularly from TSOs and regulators – sound competence and specialised resources.
Therefore, ENTSOG and the FSR have combined efforts in setting up a training course for NC implementation.

This course is aimed at professionals seeking a better understanding of gas network codes and their importance to the development of the EU internal gas market.
In particular, the training is addressed to the interested public, that means to people sufficiently knowledgeable about the gas market and gas systems but without any specific knowledge of NCs regulatory background and operational details about their implementation.
Participation in the course is however open to anyone who wishes to get a deeper knowledge on EU gas NCs, e.g. NRAs, governments, academics, media outlets, students, European associations, companies and stakeholders.
The participants can take the course on 3 different levels:
The amount of time required to take this course depends on the aimed course level as well as the level of expertise in the subject prior to joining the course:
The course is a highly interactive experience. While it takes place completely online, it makes use of the social possibilities of in-class instruction through modern online tools and media.
The learning content is divided into 7 lessons, and at the core of each lesson is a live online class with the instructor. The class draws on your progress and input, addresses the points you have defined as significant during the module and allows you the perfect opportunity to have a real influence on the content.
In addition, you will have all the online tools at hand: you will watch videos, take part in forum discussions, access diverse reading material as well as take quizzes and polls. During the course you will have a chance to work on cases discussed in the world of natural gas together with the specialists of the field.
This prosumer approach to learning guarantees the best possible learning outcomes. This course is designed to stimulate the discussion and to provide a forum where different stakeholders can share their experience and best practices stemming from the implementation of the network codes.
At the end of the course, the participants can earn a Certificate of Attendance, a Certificate of Completion or a Certificate of Excellence, depending of their performance and engagement throughout the course.
Klaus-Dieter Borchardt (Director, DG ENER, European Commission) endorses the online course on the EU Gas Network Codes created jointly by the Florence School of Regulation and ENTSOG, explaining in particular which are the main benefits from joining it.. The course gives all participants a unique opportunity to learn from the experts actively involved in the development of network codes – national TSOs and ENTSOG.
First and foremost - a big thanks to all of the team. It was a pleasure working (and learning) with you. I really enjoyed the mastery challenge, especially the two live discussions.
The course was very clear, concise and well-structured. We've got a lot of support from the course facilitators.
I was really impressed how good the course was organised, thank you! The course was perfect!
