Announcing the Global Forum on Energy Transition

FSR Global


Mar 20, 2019

The European Commission calls for a climate neutral Europe and a clean planet for all by 2050.

The Florence School of Regulation (FSR) commits to this goal by hosting its first Global Forum, taking place on March 25-28 at the European University Institute in Florence.

We start where other forums end…

The FSR Global Forum is a 4-day event fostering practice-oriented solutions on key aspects of the world energy transition, gathering 100 executive representatives from government agencies, regulatory bodies, energy companies, development organizations and academics specifically from Europe, Asia, Africa, Northern and Latin America.

Jean-Michel Glachant, Director of Florence School of Regulation, highlighted, “The world is getting smaller: energy and climate make all our countries become real neighbours. From Peru to India, from Madagascar to Iceland, smart neighbours meet and speak with each other… and our Global Forum welcomes them all”.

The main thematic lines of the FSR Global Forum include:

  • power markets and networks
  • electric vehicles
  • universal access to energy
  • digitalisation
  • electricity storage
  • decarbonisation
