The Florence School of Regulation (FSR) and the Council of European Energy Regulators (CEER) are proud to announce the 7th edition of our joint course “Introduction to Fundamentals of Energy Regulation”. This year the course will be held online on 20-29 April 2021. The course will also include an “offline” week (12-16 April 2021) for participants to familiarise with the online platform and the preparatory material for the course. The CEER-FSR course is focused on explaining the fundamentals of EU energy policy and regulation, building on similar successful courses held in previous years.
The course is specifically designed for participants from National Regulatory Agencies, European Institutions and other public authorities looking for an introduction to, and a comprehensive overview of EU energy regulatory principles and practice.
The joint CEER-FSR training “Introduction to Fundamentals of Energy Regulation” is focused on explaining the fundamentals of EU energy policy and regulation, building on similar successful courses held in previous years. The course’s main target group is newer staff members within National Regulatory Authorities (NRAs), European Institutions and other public authorities.
The CEER-FSR course will comprehensively explain the key aspects of EU electricity and gas regulation, including the latest developments, both theory and practice, across the energy cost chain from wholesale markets through to networks and retail issues. Attendees will be provided with a clear understanding of the economic and legal frameworks that have developed in European energy regulation, including an explanation of the main institutions and participants involved.
The course brings together the FSR’s rigorous academic understanding of regulatory principles along with the CEER’s senior regulatory practical knowledge and expertise. By combining academic groundings and practical on-the-job regulatory experience, the course seeks to build the operational understanding, capacity and tools for newer staff members of NRAs, European Institutions and other public authorities, which they can then apply in their work.
Course Directors: Ilaria Conti, Head of FSR Gas Area and Koen Locquet, CREG Acting President.
Course Advisors: Jean-Michel Glachant, Director of the Florence School of Regulation, and Margot Loudon, Member of the CEER Training Academy Advisory Board
The course comprises of two related modules and an offline preparation week with an expected preparation time of approximately 4 hours. Attendance at both modules is highly recommended, though they are designed such that participants can gain value by attending just one of the modules if they wish.
Module 1 (20-22 April)| EU Energy Regulatory Framework and Policy:
Module 2 (27-29 April) | European Electricity and Gas Market Regulation:
The course is ideal for participants from National Regulatory Authorities (NRAs), European Institutions and other public authorities looking for an introduction to, and a comprehensive overview of EU energy regulatory principles and practice.
Previous knowledge about European energy regulation is recommended but not mandatory.

The registration fee for others:
CEER offers 4 (four) scholarships of 50% fee reduction to participants from CEER members and observers for registering to this course. The scholarships are offered based on the principle of helping those facing budget constraints to reduce the costs of sending their staff to CEER training courses.
The eligible NRAs for CEER Training Scholarships are those from countries whose GDP per capita falls below the 90% threshold of the EU-27’s GDP per capita (according to the Eurostat official data).
Participants from the qualified NRAs are invited to apply for the four CEER Training Scholarships for this course by indicating this in the online registration form in the tab “Registration”. When the registration is closed, the four selected participants will be notified whether they get the scholarships. If more than four individuals apply for the scholarships, only four participants from the qualified NRAs with the lowest percentage from the Eurostat figures are chosen. An eligible NRA can benefit from maximum 2 scholarships per year. More scholarships could be offered to the qualified NRAs with the lower percentage (below 50%) from the Eurostat figures
Exchanging thoughts on gas grid regulation in Brussels at the FSR/CEER training. Always a pleasure and good to be challenged by bright regulators from all over EU and beyond.
The Instructors were very good, the organisation was perfect and everything worked very well. The mix of case studies, discussions and presentations was excellent.
