The priority for Europe’s energy sector is to decarbonise while maintaining security of supply, affordability for consumers and competitiveness for businesses. For the gas sector, infrastructure planning, legislation and policy need to be updated to facilitate decarbonisation, improve market functioning and maximise the opportunities arising from sector integration. Energy regulators, while having to deal with the implementation and monitoring the Network Codes in Gas, also face with these new emerging regulatory challenges in the European gas sector.
This tailor-made CEER online training programme is designed for experts from National Regulatory Authorities with previous experience in gas market regulation who would like to update their knowledge and expertise in order to deal with the continuing and emerging challenges in the European gas markets, including those arising in connection with the development and use of renewable and decarbonised gases. Other experts from European Institutions (ACER, European Commission) are also invited to attend.
Level B: Specialised Course
This course will cover the future developments of the European gas markets and the role of gas in the European Green Deal. It will provide lessons learnt from developing  the Gas Target Model and case studies on some remaining and emerging issues during the implementation. In anticipation of the revised EU legislation affecting the gas market, the programme will address expected new developments and new regulatory challenges, including infrastructure challenges, cooperation and coordination between electricity and gas sectors, regulatory oversight and dynamic regulation to support new activities and technologies. Moreover, participants will have the opportunity to join interesting discussions on how to deal with emerging issues in a dynamic gas market through presentation of good regulatory practices and approaches.
