REMIT and its implementation

2 DAY Residential Course

This FSR-ACER 2-day residential course in Bruges 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 introducing 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 European long- and short-term wholesale energy markets, both for electricity and gas. 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.

Furthermore, its peculiarity lies also in the complex, multi-layered monitoring and enforcement system involving national actors, like the National Regulatory Authorities (NRAs), and European ones, like the EU Agency for the Cooperation of Energy Regulators (ACER).

The FSR-ACER Training on REMIT covers the most relevant concepts at stake (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 cooperation between the different players in market surveillance (NRAs, ACER etc.).

This course builds on the unique academic knowledge and practical expertise, and 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.
