CEER Commissioner-Level Seminar on Managing European and National Agendas on Energy Regulation

29-30 March 2017

Course Organisation

With the recent publication of the European Commission’s proposals on “Clean Energy for All Europeans”, it is very important for senior staff of National Regulatory Authorities (NRAs) to understand European energy policy, how it is developed by the EU and the role that NRAs can play in influencing it, both at European and national level.   

Designed for: This seminar is exclusively designed for Commissioner-level and senior-level staff from National Regulatory Authorities (NRAs). 

Programme overview:

  • Key insights into how energy policy discussions, developments and structures at EU level significantly affect regulators and energy markets, including the "Clean Energy for All Europeans" proposals. 
  • Unique opportunity to meet and exchange views with the key players at the European Parliament, European Commission, CEER, ACER on the new proposals 
  • Lively discussion on governance issues, the changing roles of regulators in the EU, regional and national framework and approaches in advising and briefing national Governments and Ministries  
  • Useful regulatory good practices which contribute to strengthening regulatory oversight and market confidence.   

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. 

What did participants say about the previous CEER's Executive Seminar?

"The seminar was eye-opening and provided a view of the strategic and political aspects".

"I left the seminar with a greater understanding of the EU processes and actors. I was very pleased to have met colleagues from NRAs as well as external contacts".  

Course Director: Lord Mogg, CEER President and Chair of ACER’s Board of Regulators.
