Course description

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 5-day training course will be organised into thematic modules focusing on the hottest 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.

 

During the Course the following broad themes are addressed:

  • Role and functions of the regulator
  • Price and tariff regulation
  • Competition and regulation in electricity and gas
  • Investment incentives to meet growing electricity demand
  • The interlinks between energy policy and regulation

 

Target Audience:

The course is available to practising energy regulators and to non-regulators such as ministry and local government representatives, banking institutions, law and investment firms, consulting companies and regulated utility companies.
