Teacher Hans De Keulenaer, Fulvio Fontini


The third package of energy liberalization has set up the milestone of completion of internal energy market (IEM) by year 2014, for both gas and electricity. In order to do so, targets were established and rules and process specified in order to achieve the targets. The lecture will explore the definition, meaning, content and perspectives of the internal energy market target for the power sector, focusing on the requirements set up by directive 2009/72/EC and on the monitoring activity to fulfil it. It considers two main aspects:

* The rules and the procedure to achieve the internal energy market in electricity by specifying the market design for the electricity sector at all levels:
