The Florence School of Regulation, together with Bruegel and Fondazione ENI Enrico Mattei, is jointly organising the exclusive Workshop: ‘Challenges for EU Regulators in the Age of Decarbonisation and Digitalization’ taking place in Florence on Thursday 2 February 2017.

The ongoing decarbonisation of the energy system has not only led to an energy mix that is increasingly integrating renewable energy sources;  but it has also initiated a decentralisation process that brought the individual customer at the centre of this transition and enabled his or her participation in the business’s digitalization.

The event will therefore explore the latest challenges faced by regulatory authorities at the national and EU level, as well as by the transmission and distribution system operators.

These different perspectives are analysed in the three Sessions of the workshop:

  • Session I: The EU Regulators Perspective

Cross-sectoral and cross-authority cooperation in the digital world. How important is it, and how will it work in the case of issues around smart meters in energy, the internet of things, data privacy, and data protection?

 

  • Session II: The DSOs Perspective

What is a digital DSO for you? What does it imply in terms of organizational change, business model innovation, and data governance? What about collaboration with TSOs?

 

  • Session III: The TSOs Perspective

What is a digital TSO for you? What does it imply in terms of organizational change, business model innovation, and data governance? What about collaboration with DSOs?
