Regulation for Sustainable Development Goal 7

18 WEEK Online Course

Achieving equal access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy is one of the targets of the United Nation’s initiatives for a sustainable future (Sustainable Development Goal 7). According to reports by the UN, “access to electricity in the poorest countries has begun to accelerate, energy efficiency continues to improve and renewable energy is making gains in electricity sector”. Despite these improvements, hundreds of millions of people still suffer from having limited access to energy sources.

The present online course analyses the multi-dimensional approach to energy access, by emphasising the role of regulation in bringing actionable solutions to these problems.

Bringing together a host of experts from across the world, this training will provide the learner with insights on how to design the appropriate policy and regulatory framework needed to ensure sustainable energy for all (Sustainable Development Goal 7 – SDG7).  Learning outcomes include:

  • Understanding of the interdependence of the tools available to address energy access including the technologies (traditional, clean and smart), finance, business models and regulatory instruments
  • Understanding of the wider impact energy access has on health, education and on overall socio-economic development

The length of the course is approximately 4.5 months. The course is divided into 6 knowledge blocks with a total of 17 lessons and 6 Live panels. The number of hours needed per week is 4-6 hours.

What Participants say about this course

The past five months were full of discovery and great learning opportunities. Grateful to Enel Foundation for the opportunity given to me to take this amazing course offered by the FlorenceSchoolofRegulation. Universal access to energy requires better regulation, and the FSR Energy will stop at nothing than providing the best skills to these game-changers. I can't thank the FSR team enough for the pack of knowledge I gained.
