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.

A great, holistic course in power regulation!
This was the best and complete course on Power Markets I have taken.
This course gave me the opportunity to indeptly understand the power sector from a regulatory perspective. It challanged me to go beyond noticing and pointing out the problems in the Nigerian power sector and equipping me with the knowledge to proffer solutions to the problems.
The practical approach to this course helped deepened my understanding of electricity markets and also to appreciate the importance of regulation in success of the markets.
A well structured course that provides invaluable insights for anyone desiring to learn more about the workings of the power sector. Highly recommended!
Rich in content, crisp in delivery, highly recommend this course for anyone who wants to advance in the regulation of the power sector.
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!
