ISGAN Introductory Webinar Sandbox 2.0 Knowledge Exchange

28. January 2021
Online, AT

Building on the successful ISGAN Knowledge Transfer Project (KTP) in 2019, involving more than 20 countries, and subsequent work on regulatory sandboxes, this webinar introduces the follow-up workshop series "Sandbox 2.0" to capture recent developments and to support countries in their development of such regulatory instruments, to enable upscaling and deployment of energy system innovation.


The International Smart Grid Action Network (ISGAN)

The webinar is jointly organized by

  • ISGAN Annex 2 (Case Studies)
  • ISGAN Annex 4 (Policy Insights)
  • ISGAN Annex 7 (Transitions)
  • ISGAN Annex 8 (ISGAN Academy)

Content Description

The objective of the project is to facilitate a structured and learning-focused knowledge exchange on sandbox programs and similar measures of regulatory experimenting in different countries.

Regulatory Experimenting and particularly Regulatory Sandboxes has become a hot topic over the last years, not only in the field of energy but also in other areas, such as finance, transport, health etc. It has reached the highest political attention, as shown by the recent European Council communication on "Regulatory Sandboxes and Experimentation Clauses as tools for an innovation-friendly, future-proof and resilient regulatory framework".

This webinar will introduce the focus of the workshop series on regulatory experimenting and present the knowledge exchange process.

The International Smart Grid Action Network (ISGAN) is a Technology Collaboration Programme (TCP) for a Co-operative Programme on Smart Grids within the International Energy Agency (IEA). It is also an initiative of the Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM). ISGAN was formally established at the 2nd CEM meeting in Abu Dhabi, in 2011.

Target Audience

The knowledge exchange on Sandboxes 2.0 is designed to facilitate dialogue amongst national policy makers in ministries and agencies in charge of climate & energy policy, innovation policy; regulatory bodies; R&D funding agencies; law makers; researchers and innovators.

Furthermore, stakeholders from the international level such as Clean Energy Ministerial, Mission Innovation, International associations of energy regulators, IEA and European Commission are invited to participate.

Participant Information
