The FSR Global Forum on World Energy Transition

The Florence School of Regulation (FSR) is hosting a 4-day event to facilitate transnational knowledge exchange on key aspects of the world energy transition on 25-28 March 2019.

The energy sector is undergoing a serious transition, being subject to the challenges and opportunities brought by the unstoppable global trends of decentralisation, decarbonisation, and digitalisation. As perhaps the most flexible component of the energy sector, the power sector is rapidly changing, through the introduction of distributed energy resources (DERs), the adoption of cleaner technologies, and the utilisation of ICT technologies at all levels.

The motive underlying the portfolio of topics that are brought for discussion in this Global Forum is that the primary objective of the regulatory institutions and the regulation itself must be to facilitate and enable the best technical and economic solutions, to minimise unnecessary regulatory interference and to encourage efficient results.

At the Global Forum, 100 representatives from government agencies, regulatory bodies, energy companies, energy utilities, development organisations and academics will meet in Florence to discuss and propose practice-oriented solutions around topical issues with a special focus on Latin America, Africa and Asia.

We start where other conferences end!

The delegates will explore topical issues from emerging and developed countries via 12 deep-dive sessions and map the key insights. The Forum’s outcomes will be translated into policy actions, working groups and partnerships that will be the sector’s front-runners. Our FSR Global Forum does not end on the 28th of March but will self-transform into a real global working platform.
