About the Course:

Over the last few years energy regulation has skyrocketed. With regulation on wholesale energy market integrity and transparency (REMIT), an EU regulation which has been adopted since December 2011, and the Market Abuse Directive II (MAD II) and Market Abuse Regulation (MAR) coming into effect in July 2016. To add to this, MiFID II is set to be implemented from January 2018, adding greater unease to an already complex market. The "Brexit" process will soon also have an impact on many market participants.

While it has become increasingly clear that companies need to be more transparent with their dealings, and work closer with regulators in order to sustain a fair market, energy companies are less used to regulatory change compared to the financial industry.

As a result, EnergyRisk has designed a two day training course focusing on the various energy regulations that companies need to deal with, and how to adjust to the impending MiFID II rules.
