Course Outline

ERRA’s flagship event is a „must” for junior regulatory staff as it lays the foundations on the basic principles of regulation including different regulatory models, market structures, price and tariff regulation and recent technology drivers transforming our sectors.

Apart from covering regulatory models and the evolving role of regulators in a transforming energy landscape, the course will also focus on the issue of integration of renewables in the mix and technology drivers of this transformation. Latest gas market developments will also be looked at, covering gas infrastructure regulation and the value chain of international gas markets.

The course achieves this through a hybrid training course: with possible physical attendance in Budapest or with online presence via Zoom. The course will last 5 days.

10 CER credits will be awarded to those participants who successfully completed the course. Learn more about ERRA Certified Energy Regulator Programme.
