This blended course starts with a four-week online block, introducing you to the basic principles of gas regulation in Europe. After completing the online block, you will be prepared for a five-day immersive residential block in Florence, where you will dive deep into gas market regulation, comparing different regional gas market models and analysing the best ways to implement EU Network Codes, in particular, the Balancing and Tariff Network Codes.
What you will learn:
The FSR Specialised Training on the Regulation of Gas Markets covers the basic principles of regulation in the gas sector, as well as the most relevant and topical issues in Europe and worldwide.
After a general assessment of the gas market context, the course gives an overview on the various and diverse applications of gas regulation in different geographical contexts (ex. EU, USA). By comparing different regional gas market models, the course analyses the best ways to fully implement the existing EU Network Codes, in particular the Balancing and Tariff Network Codes.
Moreover, the course offers a deep insight on the basic concepts of gas regulation such as transmission tariffs, Third Party Access (TPA) and pipeline competition, incentives to new infrastructure, and price caps – with a practical perspective supported by concrete examples and case studies. Participants will have the opportunity to improve and exercise their regulatory knowledge, while developing their problem solving skills by working in small groups.
The participants will also have a chance to test their understanding of the balancing market by engaging in the balancing market simulation game.

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.
