'I really loved the online course “Regulation of the power sector”.

The power sector is going through a transformation today. Europe’s Energy Union, liberalisation of the power sector, the growing part of  renewable energy in the energy mix provides for new opportunities in providing more sustainable energy supply. At the same time the role of 'smart' regulation is getting even more important. This course helps to go to the depths of power sector regulation. It is serious, interactive and require a lot of independent research in a chosen power system. I especially enjoyed the live classes at the end of each chapter.

I can recommend this course for all interested in power system management.'
