Webinar Outline

As the energy market has become complex with many actors actively involved in its shaping, it is more difficult not only to keep track of transactions taking place and detecting irregularities or manipulation but also to follow the compliance rules. The second edition of the Market Surveillance Webinar series will explore relations within the energy market surveillance system occurring between regulators and various market participants.

The event will stress the necessity of adoption of reporting and compliance systems by market participants and the role of guidelines from regulators that help them navigating through the established rules of fair and legal conduct.

The webinar targets both regulators and market participants such as TSOs, energy trading companies, power exchanges and alike. The theoretical presentations will be supported by practical case studies.
