Introduction to Energy Regulation

ERRA Summer School  – Introduction to Energy Regulation

Budapest, 29th June – 4th July 2020

Economic, legal, technical and financial skills are central to the administrative and economic regulation of the public utilities. The constantly changing environment not only requires proper response from the regulatory side, it is also essential to be aware of the global trends in the energy sector. The current economic climate across the world and the emergence of renewable energy sources have pointed to the need of addressing recent technological innovations that demand a different approach to regulatory practice. Corresponding to these new challenges the training course aims to focus on some of the discussed topics from a “smart perspective”.

Course Objectives:

This 6-day training course will be organised into thematic modules focusing on the fundamental issues and global trends of energy sector regulation. The training program combines “classic” regulation under the traditional vertically integrated industry structure with up-to-date issues of regulation by discussing the topics from a “smart” point of view. The prime objective of the course is to provide basic technical, economic and legal regulatory skills that are needed to design and manage successful regulatory systems for the energy industry and at the same time provide insights to the recent challenges brought by stringent climate objectives and technological development.

Principles of Natural Gas Market Regulation

ERRA Training Course  – Principles of Natural Gas Market Regulation

Budapest, 10th-13th March, 2020

Immerse in and explore the complex nature of gas markets! Surrounded by geopolitics and with an important, transitional role in tackling climate change, the good regulation of natural gas and predictability of natural gas demand are seriously challenged in the 21st century. As regional markets are converging, we observe the emergence of a global gas market – a development that is driven by technological innovation, evolving market dynamics and of course by politics and regulation.

Innovation and flexibility are key to face the new challenges both from the market participants’, but also from the regulators’ side. This course will help you to understand the logic behind all of the above determinants and guide you through possible regulatory approaches on how to adapt to ongoing changes and how to address your specific market architecture needs.
