FSR Sector Coupling Platform

The idea of “sector coupling” was recently proposed by the European Commission in the context of the Madrid Forum.

The concept of “sector coupling” builds on the need for greater integration between the electricity and gas sectors – by optimising the existing synergies in the generation, transport, and distribution of electricity and gas – with the ultimate scope to build a decarbonized and hybrid EU energy system.

The Florence School of Regulation aims to facilitate and extend the debate on sector coupling and its challenges by exploring new ideas, innovative projects and technologies which could facilitate the coupling of the electricity and gas sectors – as well as the regulatory implications that the changes will entail.
