The European Commission invites energy stakeholders, policy-makers and national regulators for a day of high-level debates on the state of play and future of regulation in electricity markets and infrastructure.
The event will complement the European Electricity Regulatory Forum which is now approaching its 33rd edition. The conference will see leading policy-makers from across the EU institutions, national authorities and industry representatives join forces to assess the perspectives on the sector and the potential for regulation to bring about positive change.
In the presence of European Commissioner for Energy and Climate Action Miguel Arias Cañete and other leading speakers, topics will include:
- What are the key drivers to Europe's evolving electricity markets?
- How can energy suppliers stay relevant in the energy transition?
- What is the contribution of interconnectors to the energy transition?
Hosted by the city of Florence in the premises of its Palazzo Vecchio, the day will be structured around an opening session followed by three panels focusing on wholesale markets, retail markets and infrastructures.
On the evening of Sunday 26 November, a day before the conference, the City of Florence jointly with ENEL will host a welcome cocktail reception and tour of the Palazzo Strozzi. You are kindly requested to indicate your interest at the moment of registration and you will be contacted with further information.
The event will be webstreamed.
