EEC provides customised training on Renewable Energy Finance
The European Energy Centre (EEC) bridges the gap between industry and academia by bringing together renowned University lecturers and leading organisations in the sector, in order to support knowledge sharing and best practices in the global Renewable Energy Industry. The EEC has provided bespoke training to organisations worldwide in order to support this mission and recently designed a bespoke 2-day training workshop for the global financial news publication, Acuris, in order to strengthen their expertise in Renewable Energy Finance.
The EEC has since spoken to Dermot McCloskey regarding his experience on the course. Dermot is the co-head of Research at Acuris’ Inframation Group.
"Excellent course material and knowledgeable tutor."
- Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) - Lawrence Avery, UK Head of Clean Technology Fund
Why did Acuris select the European Energy Centre to provide their in-house training?
We selected the European Energy Centre because we were looking to enhance our understanding of the regulatory changes affecting the renewable energy sector. As a financial news publication, we were impressed by the comprehensive structure of the course, the insight offered by expert industry trainers and the fact it was tailored to the project finance sector.
How did the bespoke nature of the training benefit the attending delegates?
The delegates were greatly impressed by our trainer’s deep industry knowledge, his ability to simplify and contextualise complex matters and how he continued to draw-out relevant details which would assist with our work.
"The course covered a good balance of breadth and depth in various types of renewable energy technologies…The course tutor is clearly an expert with detailed insight in to the sector."
- UK Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy - Fraser Macleod, Principal Research Officer
How will the knowledge and skills offered by the course support you and your colleagues in future projects?
We report on the financing and regulation of infrastructure and renewable energy assets. Having a deeper understanding of how these transactions are structured and the regulatory environment in which they operate enables us to ask more incisive questions, improving our editorial content.
In your opinion, what are the benefits for organisations who arrange bespoke in-house training sessions for their employees?
The course was flexible and tailored to our needs. I would highly recommend for anyone in the industry.
