The EU’s Electricity and Gas Directives and related legislation, adopted in 2009 and collectively known as the “3rd Package”, introduced a set of rules relating to the organisation and functioning of the European electricity and gas sectors. The energy regulatory processes have been and will continue to evolve with the European Commission's proposals on "Clean Energy for All Europeans", also known as “Clean Energy Package” published in November 2016. One of the aims of the new legislative proposals is to set the governance rules for the Energy Union. What is proposed in the European Commission's new legislative proposals and what might they change?
This CEER Specialised Legal Training that will take place on 27 and 28 February in Brussels will provide a state of play of the Clean Energy Package and address the evolving regulatory challenges for National Regulatory Authorities (NRAs) at the European, regional and national level. The challenges regarding the European decision-making processes, the implementation of Network Codes / Guidelines, as well as other challenges in the implementation of the security of supply in electricity and gas regulations and of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will be discussed.
Legal experts from National Regulatory Authorities (NRAs) with legal background and previous experience in energy regulatory framework and Network Codes/Guidelines (at least 2-3 years experience). Other non-legal experts with previous experience in these topics from NRAs and European Institutions (ACER, European Commission) are also invited to attend.

Through CEER, a not-for-profit organisation, European national energy regulators cooperate, exchange best practice and develop regulatory policy in order to benefit Europe's energy consumers. This organisation champions best practice regulation among its own energy regulators and with outside stakeholders such as EU policy makers and legislators.
