KSEP holds the second training course in EU energy law

A training course from DiXi Group project, Kyiv School of Energy Policy (KSEP), has ended. 67 attendees successfully completed the online training in Energy Law and Regulation in the EU held on 16-18 July 2020 and received certificates.

It was the second training course held by KSEP since the year’s beginning. 89 applicants from various institutions including the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine, NEURC, Energy Ministry, Justice Ministry, Gas-TSO Ukraine, Ukrenergo, State Agency for Energy Efficiency and Energy Conservation, Naftogaz, Ukrtransgaz, Ukrhydroenergo, Ukrainian Railways, State Service for Geology and Subsoil and many others, have registered for it in a matter of few days.

“This time, we selected on a competitive basis almost three times as many attendees from among the registered applicants,” Denys Nazarenko, the project’s head and General Manager of Training Programs at DiXi Group, says. “I am pleased that the number of people who want to study at KSEP is growing, and the online format enabled the participation of the greater number of applicants. Our team was able to organise this course in a short time, as we have already mastered the specifics of distance learning. It is also worth noting that the coaches with whom we successfully worked in the past were able to find a time and promptly responded.

The course consisted of 10 days of individual work on bilingual materials and three days of online training conducted by practising coaches: Sergio Ascari of the Florence School of Regulation (Italy), Lucila de Almeida of the European University Institute in Florence (Italy), and Andrius Šimkus of Nord Pool AS, Litgrid AB (Lithuania).

The main topics studied by the attendees included the theory of energy regulation, the basics of EU energy law (foundations of the system of law, evolution of legislation), protection of energy service consumers and PSO, methodology of tariffing depending on the priorities of public policy, and EU network codes.

After every lecture, the attendees were able to work in groups and directly communicate with the coach during the questions and answers session.

Separate attention was devoted to the development of practical cases: liberalisation of energy markets in Italy, PSO in Ireland’s renewable sources of energy and Lithuania’s LNG, PSO in the Energy Community; and to the conflict with PSO in Ukraine’s gas market.

Kyiv School of Energy Policy’s further plans includes new programs for those willing to improve their competence in international energy policy using a modern format of a specifically-designed training video.

The course was implemented by the DiXi Group team with the support from the German Economic Team. The training course was supported and financed by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy.
