Training on Electricity Market Design and Renewables 

About the course

Level B: Specialised Course

The "Clean Energy for All Europeans" Package (CEP) which was adopted in July 2019 aims to introduce an improved electricity market design in Europe. Since 1 January 2020, all provisions of the new Electricity Regulation (EU) 2019/943 have started to be applicable to the electricity markets and the provisions of the new Electricity Directive (EU) 2019/944 are on their way to be transposed into the national laws at the latest by 31 December 2020. Despite the early preparations, National Regulatory Authorities (NRAs) still face numerous challenges in implementing the new legislative package. Some open issues still have to be solved and common understandings and approaches still have to be developed. 

This tailor-made CEER hybrid training programme is designed for experts from NRAs with a general background or previous experience in the electricity markets who would like to improve or update their knowledge and expertise in order to succeed with the implementation phase of the Clean Energy Package and the related electricity market design challenges. Other experts from European Institutions (ACER, European Commission) are also invited to attend.

Participants will revisit the fundamentals of electricity market design, benefit from the input of academics on new key developments and challenges, and receive up-to-date information about important issues currently discussed and developed by NRAs.

All sessions will allow time at the end for Q&A, discussions and exchanges with the trainers and other participants.
