Abstract: Market reforms in European electricity
sector have profoundly changed the sector and how it is
regulated. When Florence Forum came into practice in
1998, it introduced a new concept of regulation: based on
open discussion and consensus of every stakeholder.
During 10 years, Florence Forum has not only popularized
successfully regulation by cooperation as an innovative
form of regulating the electricity sector, but it also gave
birth to several important “by-products”, namely
CEER/ERGEG, mini-fora, Regional Initiatives. They, in
turn, influence back to the Forum and evolve it into a
Florence Process where regulators, together with
stakeholders, exchange opinions, information and apply
regulatory techniques to direct the European market
reforms. In this paper, we summarized the 10 years history
of Florence Forum to the current privilege platform in
understanding European electricity liberalization. We also
tried to generalize main factors which contribute to the
meaningful role of the Florence Process in the European
electricity sector.
