Electricity Policy & Regulation

The Electricity Area at the Florence School of Regulation is a platform where academics, national regulators, representatives from European institutions, network companies and market players debate and exchange their views and practices about the most recent developments in the industry, its regulation and broader European energy policy.

To remain at the frontier of knowledge and public debate, the Electricity Area develops applied researchinnovative training and fosters policy dialogue on the most topical policy and regulatory issues in the electricity sector of Europe and beyond.
