Regulatory Delivery

7 WEEKS Online Course

Better Governance for the Global Energy Transition

How are regulatory authorities adjusting their governance, and how should they adjust, to ensure that they meet societal goals and promote efficient economic choices? This online training combines theoretical and practical views on how to assess regulatory delivery, as well as outputs and outcomes of regulatory authorities, from economic, legal, societal perspectives.

This course will share optimal governance models experienced in Europe for the energy transition while comparing them with innovative initiatives in South America, Asia, and Africa. During the course, you will review increasingly complex infrastructure regulation due to public policies promoting liberalisation, decarbonisation and digitalisation.

This course is a joint collaboration between the Transnational School of Governance and the FSR Energy & Climate
