Energy Union Law & Policy

The FSR provides a forum for critical discussion and independent analysis of the developments in EU energy law and policy. Our activities are aimed at professionals from national energy regulatory authorities, European and international institutions, energy-focused law firms, consultancies and energy utility companies.

The FSR organises an extensive series of policy events throughout Europe focusing on the current topics facing energy market players from both a legal and economic perspective, and promote European and international networking through knowledge and practice sharing. We carry out applied research and provide training courses that bring together leading experts in the field to provide participants with critical insight and comprehensive knowledge of the key issues in energy law and policy.
