Technical-Economic-Management

Regulation, Directives, Energy strategies and policies

  • This subject is intended to give a wide view of the world structure of energy systems, summarizing the different energy policies and strategies from European to local environments. Also, in this subject, the main directives that define the European energy strategy will be studied. The different laws and rules applicable in the electric energy management, transmission and distribution will be addressed. Some issues will extend to other energy markets such as gas and oil markets.
