REMIT and its implementation

3 DAY Residential Course

This FSR-ACER residential course in Florence covers the scope of the EU Regulation on Wholesale Energy Market Integrity and Transparency (REMIT) and the way in which it is implemented.

Mapping the EU framework for wholesale energy market transparency and integrity

In force since 28 December 2011, REMIT is the legislation establishing a sector-specific, directly applicable framework to detect and deter market abusive behaviour in the forms of insider trading and market manipulation, including attempted market manipulation, in respect to European wholesale energy products, including electricity, gas. derivative instruments and infrastructure capacity. It pursues a three-sided aim:

  • to increase trust in the integrity of the gas and electricity markets;
  • to ensure that prices of wholesale energy products reflect a competitive and fair interplay between supply and demand, securing the optimal allocation of resources;
  • to prevent profits resulting from market abuse.

REMIT implementation rests on the complex, multi-layered monitoring and enforcement system involving private actors, such as Persons Professionally Arranging Transactions (PPATs), national authorities, like the National Regulatory Authorities (NRAs), and European bodies, like the  EU Agency for the Cooperation of Energy Regulators (ACER).

This FSR-ACER Training Course explores in depth the types of behaviours which REMIT aims at detecting and deterring (i.e., insider trading and market manipulation), the main obligations and prohibitions falling on market participants and other sector stakeholders (e.g., the obligation to disclose inside information) and the way in which national and European entities (NRAs, ACER etc.) cooperate to ensure effective market surveillance.

This course builds on the unique academic knowledge and expertise and practical experience of instructors from the FSR and ACER. Furthermore, representatives from organised marketplaces and financial conduct authorities will share their experiences. Instructors will present case studies to provide course participants with examples from the real world.

  • Interpret instances that may constitute market abuse, including forms such as market manipulation and insider trading.
  • Analyse the surveillance methodologies employed by national regulatory authorities and ACER.
  • Identify the modifications implemented in the REMIT framework through the recent Regulation revision.

The course is given in English and developed for:

  • Professionals engaged in the regulation of the energy sector
  • Staff of government agencies and regulatory bodies
