This course enables Commissioner-level and senior-level staff of National Regulatory Authorities (NRAs) to reflect on their NRA's role and effectiveness with the entry into force of the "Clean Energy for All Europeans" Package and on how they regulate. This intensive and exclusive one-day programme provides a unique opportunity for participants (Commissioner-level and senior-level NRA staff) to learn and exchange views on the implementation of the new regulatory framework under the "Clean Energy for All Europeans" legislation, on what dynamic regulation means and why regulators need to pursue dynamic regulation in times of change. The programme offers a first-hand opportunity to learn from fellow senior regulators, policy-makers and energy actors who are directly involved in energy regulatory policy development and implementation.  

Designed for:

This seminar is exclusively designed for NRA Commissioner-level and senior-level staff. Other experts from European Institutions (ACER, European Commission) are also invited to attend.

Programme overview:

  • Key insights into public policies, regulatory policy and how to implement the new regulatory framework in general. 
  • Overview of the Clean Energy Package and how to be an effective regulator in implementing the Package.
  • Unique opportunity to meet and exchange views with the key players at the European Commission (Secretariat-General, Directorate General for Energy), Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), CEER and academics.  
  • Lively discussion on dynamic regulation, how to ensure regulation anticipates and, as appropriate, adapts to market evolutions, how to regulate an industry/network with potentially continuing reduced energy volumes and more intermittent sources, how to move from static regulation to more dynamic regulation and how to regulate infrastructure for different purposes. 
  • Useful exchange on transitional regulation and the assessment of regulatory delivery in energy transition processes.
