The Florence School of Regulation (FSR) and the Council of European Energy Regulators (CEER) are proud to announce a unique joint course called “Introduction to Fundamentals of Energy Regulation”, to be held in the CEER’s office in Brussels on 30 November – 4 December 2020. This 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 ideal for participants from National Regulatory Agencies looking for an introduction to, and a comprehensive overview of EU energy regulatory principles and practice.
The Council of European Energy Regulators (CEER) and the Florence School of Regulation (FSR) are delighted to announce a unique joint course called “Introduction to Fundamentals of Energy Regulation”, to be held in the CEER’s office in Brussels in April 2019. This 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 ideally suited for 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, 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 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: Koen Locquet, CREG Director of Administrative Affairs and Ilaria Conti, Head of FSR Gas Area.
Course Advisors: Jean-Michel Glachant, Director of the Florence School of Regulation, and Margot Loudon (member of the CEER Training Advisory Board)
The course comprises of two standalone – but related – modules, as follows:
Attendance at both modules is recommended, though they are designed such that participants can gain value by attending just one module if they wish.
Each day of the course will be composed of two sessions of circa three hours each. Each session will involve two speakers: the first speaker will cover the main principles and the second will focus on practices. Each speaker will deliver a presentation, followed by a Q&A session, aiding interaction and understanding among course attendees. In addition, the first day of Module 2 includes a field trip, providing participants the opportunity to learn of the need for pan-European TSO operational coordination and infrastructure (including IT systems) to perform operational coordination activities.
Module 1 (2 days, 23-24 March 2020): EU Energy Regulatory Framework and Policy:
Module 2 (3 days, 25-27 March 2020): European Electricity and Gas Market Regulation:
Visit to a TSO regional operational coordination centre in Brussels (25 March).
This course is designed for junior staff from National Regulatory Authorities. Previous knowledge about European energy regulation is not required.
It is open to staff of National Regulatory Authorities. Participants from European Institutions and other public authorities are also welcome to attend. Priority is given to CEER members and observers.
