The European Energy Transition: Actors, Factors, Sectors

8 WEEK Online Course

ENTSO-E and FSR are partnering to guide you through the European Energy Transition journey via a new online course.

The 8-week training provides an insight into the EU’s energy transition journey by looking at the past trajectory and the challenges ahead. Technology breakthroughs, innovation including business model innovation and processes as well as changing role and emerging actors, policies, regionalisation and Europeanisation form an intrinsic part of the agenda.

The course is designed to enable the international energy community to understand the actors, sectors and factors driving change at the European level and help benchmark their region or country.

The online course is based on a book edited by Susanne Nies and prefaced by Jacques Delors which will be included (in digital form) in the course as dedicated reading material.
