Power system regulation is never at a rest, and this is particularly true for the power systems of today. In a world that is hungry for a reliable supply of electricity, regulation and reform of the power sector become the drivers for economic development. Several countries across the world have implemented energy sector reforms to improve their economic performances.
This online course will highlight the connection between strategic governance of the power sector and economic growth. It will also provide the participants with the fundamentals for working in power sector regulation, whether in a regulatory commission, in a regulatory department within a company or as a policymaker.
Led by world-class experts, the course will give you a comprehensive understanding of the main concepts and ideas behind sector regulation from an engineering, economic and regulatory perspective.
Participants will have exclusive access to the ebook version of ‘Regulation of the Power Sector’, edited by Ignacio Pérez-Arriaga for the duration of the course.
We would like to support energy scholars and professionals coming from low and middle-low income countries in their career advancement by providing free access to this online course.

I really loved the online course on Regulation of Power Sector. It helps by going into the depths of power sector regulation. It was serious, interactive and involved a lot of independent research. I enjoyed the live classes at the end of each chapter. I can recommend this course for all interested in power system management.
This online course is the most innovative and efficient crash course on power I have seen!
Although fully online, this course is supported by a dedicated team, and I could find personalized follow-up and helpful explanations when I most needed them. This was valuable input in addition to all videos, quizzes and teaching materials available during the course.
Generally, a great course, excellently thought-over and managed, thank you very much!
