About the programme

The energy transition is entering uncharted, potentially treacherous waters. Companies are searching for new ways to respond to market demand for sustainable and competitive energy products and services in light of changing market design and often imperfect governance. Successful innovation calls for a strategic perspective informed by a keen understanding of policy changes and of global demand-supply tensions in the energy system as a whole. In cooperation with the Energy Academy Europe and the Energy Delta Institute, the University of Groningen has developed this three-module energy course .

The first module

The first module in this Executive Energy Course introduces the demand-centric perspective on the coming stage of energy transition. A rigorous interdisciplinary framework is put in place from the start, in a spirit of cross-fertilization between economic, social, psychological and engineering analysis.

The second module

The framework in which energy supply is mobilized in Europe reflects increasingly far-reaching legal and regulatory instruments, to the point that the energy transition can be defined as “an intervention of society in energy markets” (Machiel Mulder). Ignoring political correctness, the second module explores the interplay between technology push and policy pull, and how the technology-and-policy mix will dovetail or not with expectations from the demand side.

The third module

The third module explores new modes of organization, whether at city level, in transition-promoting companies or in society that can maximize the transition from with the previous modules’ insights on the demand side and the supply and policy side in an economically sustainable manner.
