Date: 3 March 2020
Organisation: DG ENER
Place: Brussels, Belgium
Description: This course was specifically designed to meet DG ENER’s requirements to cover the fundamentals of unbundling in the energy sector, and market issues in the electricity and gas sector. Effective unbundling is a precondition for the development of fair competition in the energy sector. An appropriate market design promotes competition and therefore efficiency in the energy sector, ensuring fair prices and greater choice for EU consumers. Well-functioning markets make also easier to pursue the multiple objectives of EU energy policy (sustainability/decarbonisation, efficiency, security of supply, affordability) in a consistent way. In fact, if markets are well designed, it is easier to ensure the smooth functioning and interaction of parallel markets, than it is the case with administrative instruments. The course focused on specific aspects which have proved to be particularly complex or sensitive in their implementation.
