Energy Community Regulatory School
Continuous knowledge building is a constant need for national energy regulatory authorities, in particular having in mind the high complexity and broad expertise required for pro-active and effective regulation of energy markets. This challenge increases with new pieces of legislation becoming applicable in the Energy Community Contracting Parties, most of which involving direct responsibilities and new duties of regulators.
The Energy Community Regulatory School aims at supporting the technical knowledge of the Energy Community Contracting Parties’ national energy regulatory authorities to effectively implement and efficiently apply the Energy Community acquis communautaire – such as but not limited to gas and electricity network codes and guidelines or REMIT as well as resulting increasingly developing market activities. Beyond the mere legal aspects, the Energy Community Regulatory School is dedicated to deliver practical insights and share experience made on EU level. Praxis oriented, interactive and in-depth discussions will be in the core of the training courses tailor made for the Contracting Parties’ regulators.
The Secretariat began with the Energy Community Regulatory School training in late 2017. There have been 16 training courses so far, six more are planned for 2020. The training is an ongoing activity.
The course participants receive an attendance certificate. After each training the participants are asked to write a paper on a chosen agenda point. The best paper is awarded.
For each course, the Secretariat prepares the context, scope and focus group well in advance. These are grouped together into periodical training programs, which are displayed below.
