ICAM will host the presentation of the book “Regulating the energy transition. Towards a sustainable, flexible and distributed model”


Next Wednesday 5 October, at 19:00h, the Madrid Bar (ICAM) will host the presentation of the book “Regulando la transición energética. Hacia un modelo sostenible, flexible y distribuido,” published by Tirant lo Blanch.

The session will be presented by the ICAM’s Dean, José María Alonso, and Ignacio Zamora Santa Brígida, author of the book and a lawyer at EJI Abogados López-Ibor Mayor, will introduce his work. After this, a round table discussion will be held counting on the following speakers: Bird & Bird partner Hermenegildo Altozano García-Figueras, Juan de la Cruz Ferrer, Jean Monnet European Law professor at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid, and Vicente López-Ibor Mayor, president of the European Federation of Energy Law (EFELA).

According to the description [extract], this book pays special attention to the supply of electricity, a vector whose expansive vis-à-vis leads the aforementioned transition towards scenarios of greater electrification. In this way, it begins by presenting the regulatory and institutional architecture of the energy transition in the European Union and Spain, continues by laying the conceptual foundations of distributed electricity generation, and, finally, goes into the regulation of the leading distributed energy resources (self-consumption, storage, and electric mobility), as well as the participation of demand in the electricity markets through the aggregation of the aforementioned resources. All of this is explained with academic rigour and the practical vision of a lawyer. In short, this is a suggestive essay on the novelties that can be seen today in an unfinished regulatory process, which can only be understood “in gerund form”. For this reason, the author takes on the challenge of providing a photographic explanation of a living reality that needs to be filmed.
