duration 2 weeks
fee EUR 3600

This two-week executive training course wishes to embrace the logic of the Energy Union, thus putting energy consumers – i.e. businesses and households – at the centre of European energy systems and policy-making.
The training course will therefore give participants the opportunity to analyse the current EU energy policies, governance and the basics of the energy mix, before delving into the various dimensions of the EU Energy Union: from energy efficiency and renewables, to the single energy market, and research, innovation and competitiveness. Additionally, wider energy policy concerns will be tackled, such as climate change, energy security and the geopolitics of energy. The interactive lectures will be complemented with study visits, simulation games and case studies.

The programme is the result of a complementary collaboration between the College of Europe, InnoEnergy and EDF, which brings together academic excellence, innovation, and private sector perspectives.
