Utility Regulation

Hogan Lovells, Holborn Viaduct, London EC1 2FG

13th Apr 2016


  • EUA is delighted to welcome back by popular demand its "Utility Regulation 2016" one-day seminar - an annual look at leading regulatory policy and practice as it continues to shape planning, investment and operation of the nation's utility markets and infrastructures. With energy markets under review by the Competition and Markets Authority, retail markets for water and sewerage services heading towards full competition for large consumers, and a major 10-year strategic review of telecommunications markets in progress, it is timely to consider how regulatory policy is helping to deliver on higher level policy ambitions at both UK and EU level. Do join us for a cross-sector look at key regulatory developments as they impact your industry. We are delighted that the event is being hosted in 2016 by Hogan Lovells at its London conference venue in the heart of the City of London.
