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.
