regulations and the impact of regulations will be discussed. Is regulation required in energy markets ? Should energy markets be deregulated ? A case study discussion during the course. Energy market deregulation is a relatively recent event. Natural Gas markets began deregulation in the 1980's and electricity market in the mid 1990's. As energy market design evolves there have been two approaches used. Lead with regulation or follow with regulation. This course will start by describing the concept of energy regulation and the history of regulation processes. Regulation will be presented from three perspectives economic, social and environmental. Different methodologies of regulation will be presented from various regions of the world. Several case studies will be used to illustrate the successes and challenges of regulatory frameworks. The impact of the evolving ﬁnancial regulation landscape will be discussed in terms of the impact on energy market trading volumes. This course takes an applied approach with many references to real world examples. Required reading : Energy Deregulation – lessons learned from California, P. Navarro and M.
