This new training course on the Regulation and Integration of Renewable Energy provides a comprehensive introduction to the topic with the latest updates, including developments in policy and regulation in the renewables industry and research.
The objective of this course is to carefully examine the current and future role of renewable energy as a fundamental element of a sustainable, competitive, and secure power industry, as well as the regulatory mechanisms needed to integrate RES in a liberalised electricity system.
The course will answer to the following questions:
Renewable energy sources are changing the paradigms of energy policy, regulation and market design. By now, all electricity-related initiatives, including supply, transmission, delivery and consumption, are directly or indirectly influenced by the expansion and integration of renewable energy.
As a result, market actors have to adapt their commercial strategies to new market conditions, system operators have to engage in a new collaboration, integration and balancing tasks, and policy makers and regulators must consider new support schemes, financial incentivisation and regulation activities in the path towards a carbon-neutral energy system. For this reason, every energy industry professional is now directly or indirectly involved with regulating and integrating renewable energy.
Based on praxis-driven lectures and through interactive discussion with renowned specialists and active group work, the course seeks to contrast current and future regulatory actions needed for the steady development and integration of renewable energy and their implications for the electricity markets and networks, underlying the importance of stronger coordination and cooperation between the various actors involved with the final aim of maximising the benefits of renewable energy deployment.
This training course takes its starting point in the EU, and its Member States, but its focus is not limited to the Old Continent: case studies from America, Africa and Asia will be presented, too.
