This course enables Commissioner-level and senior-level staff of National Regulatory Authorities (NRAs) to reflect on their NRA's role and effectiveness with the implementation of the "Clean Energy for All Europeans" Package and the European Green Deal and on how they regulate. This intensive and exclusive one-day online programme provides a unique opportunity for participants (Commissioner-level and senior-level NRA staff) to learn and exchange views on the implementation of the new regulatory framework under the "Clean Energy for All Europeans" Package and the European Green Deal, on what dynamic regulation means and why regulators need to pursue dynamic regulation in times of change. The programme offers a first-hand opportunity to learn from fellow senior regulators, policy-makers and energy actors who are directly involved in energy regulatory policy development and implementation.
