The Fundamentals of Gas Market Regulation has been designed especially for managers and professionals in the energy industry who want to have a deep understanding of how the gas market functions, of what the interests of the various players are, and how the various positions are affected by the continuously changing rules and regulations imposed by the EU, by national governments and by regulatory bodies. When you are in the gas industry, you should continuously be aware not only of the most recent changes in regulation, but also have a firm understanding of how regulation may evolve in the future. This requires that you see the bigger picture, which is what the course will provide, and understand opportunities and risks that evolve from market change.

Upon successful completion of this gas course the participant will be able to understand and apply:

The main drivers for market regulation, its envisioned benefits and its results so far.
Core processes within a regulated gas market, including nomination, balancing, allocation, capacity and commodity markets.
Principal concepts and details of several market regulation models.
Scenarios for business and regulatory developments to identify potential market changes, opportunities and risks.
Roles, behaviour and – sometimes conflicting – aims of market players, including incumbents, new entrants and regulators.
Contemporary thought on regulation.
