Building on our flagship ‘Specialised Training on the Regulation of Gas Markets’, this new course is held this year in a fully online format and with a renewed programme, which considers the recent developments impacting gas markets in Europe and worldwide. Understanding gas market dynamics has never been more important than today.
The course starts with a three-week preparatory block which will provide you with the core knowledge and instruments needed to approach the study of gas markets, regulation, and policy. After completing these preparatory materials, you will apply and further develop your knowledge in a full week of online live classes. These sessions will provide a more in-depth perspective of gas market dynamics, and compare different regional gas market models and developments, covering the building blocks of European gas regulation as well as perspectives on the future of gas in an evolving international landscape.
What you will learn:
The FSR Gas Fundamentals covers the basic principles of regulation in the gas sector, including transmission tariffs, balancing markets, gas hubs and pipeline competition, incentives for new infrastructure, and price caps.
Along with a general assessment of the gas market context, the course gives an overview on the various and diverse gas regulation and policy applying in different geographical contexts (ex. EU, Latin America). By comparing different regional gas market models, the course analyses the EU gas regulation which is currently enforced in Europe (Third Energy Package, EU Network Codes) in particular focusing on the Balancing and Tariff Network Codes.
The course will consist of three offline weeks and one online week. During the three offline weeks (24 October – 13 November 2022), you will be granted access to our e-learning platform, where you can navigate at your own pace to complete the course readings, quizzes and activities.
During the three preparatory weeks, you can manage your time and work as per your schedule, as there are no online live classes except a one-hour introductory meeting that will take place on the first day of the course (Monday, 24 October 2022). The exact time of this introductory meeting will be confirmed soon.
The online week (14-18 November 2022) consists of live classes and expert panels. It will require your participation during a large part of the day from 09:30 to 15.00 CET (usually 2 to 3 classes in the morning + 1-hour lunch break + a panel discussion in the afternoon).
The training is primarily targeted at staff from energy utilities, TSOs, banks and representatives from National and European Regulatory Authorities or other public bodies, but also academics and researchers with an interest in gas market regulation.
No specific academic background is required, and professionals of all levels are welcome. Nevertheless, a basic knowledge of energy regulation and policymaking is recommended. The training is provided in English.
Upon completion, participants will be able to:
Each year, the Florence School of Regulation – Energy and Climate (FSR Energy & Climate) awards scholarships for a wide variety of training courses targeting a broad audience of professionals and academics.
Applications will be assessed by a Selection Committee of FSR members on a yearly basis. The successful candidates will be informed by the end of February 2023 and will be provided with all relevant information on how to enroll in the online course or residential training of their choice.
Send your application by 31 January 2023.
Paid registration fee is non-refundable. However, registrant substitution may be made up to 20 days before the start date of the course.
The Participants of the 2018 edition of the Specialised Training on the Regulation of Gas Markets share their experience and views on the training.
A week with distinct experts and professionals from all over Europe and the world. Understanding energy markets and discussing them from multiple perspectives such as regulatory, economic and technical points of view is key to tackle the challenges we are facing today with an accelerating energy transition and energy sectors as well as markets yet to be coupled. A truly inspiring week at an outstanding institution!
What an exciting Gas week in Florence discussing the future of #gas regulation, the development and outlook of global gas demand and supply in Europe and worldwide, and so much more! I extend my thanks to Florence School of Regulation - FSR Energy for a great training, but most importantly, for bringing together so many inspiring professionals and amazing people! Looking forward to attending another course of the FSR!
A wholehearted thank you to the Florence School of Regulation. I had the pleasure to interact with the bright participants and instructors, who were challenging, asking to the point questions and giving their own views.
It was a great opportunity to learn from the European experience regarding the history, formation, and regulation of the gas market. It will be very useful knowledge for the challenges we have in my home country.
This course fully immerses participants into all aspects of gas market regulation while also covering the core technical principles. Collaboration between participants is very much encouraged and the course offers a great opportunity to exchange views with high level panellists. Overall, an excellent learning experience.
Hello from Turkey! I feel privileged to be a part of this amazing learning experience. “Specialized Training on the Regulation of Gas Markets” covers basic principles of gas regulation as well as the most current issues in Europe and in the world. Our focus at the Training on September-October 2020 was decarbonization. In a group, participants prepared a final project on the infrastructure for a decarbonized gas system. Also, we played Balancing Market Game, which was an interesting learning process. I really learned a lot from this training. Thank you FSR.
Thanks to the FSR for a wonderful experience within gas, energy and sustainability. I am proud to announce the completion of specialised training on gas markets and that my group won an excellence prize. Our final project, a paper on decarbonizing the EU gas sector will be published by FSR soon. Thank you, Marina, Ilaria and other FSR colleagues.
The Summer School on Energy Systems will focus on the on the role of different energy vectors, notably hydrogen and electricity, in a sector-coupled energy system and the policy and…
