Energy Efficiency & Regulation13-14 March
The promotion of energy efficiency has not been a standard component of an energy regulatory authority’s statute. Since energy efficiency policies are wide-ranging horizontal policies, the responsible party for implementation is often the energy ministry or some specialized government authority or a dedicated energy efficiency agency. This situation is, however, changing. It is increasingly recognized that certain decisions of energy regulators, e.g. on final customer prices or on network companies’ remuneration, have significant impacts on energy companies’ and customers’ decisions with an implication for their efficiency in energy use. Energy regulators get also increasingly involved in implementing national energy efficiency programs by an explicit mandate.
The objective of this 2-days training event is to provide a concise introduction into the components of the energy regulatory job that have relevance to meet wider energy efficiency policy objectives.
The Course Director of the ERRA Training Course will be Dr. Péter Kaderják, Director of the Regional Centre for Energy Policy Research (REKK). The instructors of the course – as in the past – will be highly qualified and experienced current and/or former energy regulators and well experienced utility representatives.
