European Energy Centre collaborates with The George Washington University to successfully deliver another Renewable Energy Market Trends and Finance Course
- BNY Mellon - Nancy Jones
"The course covered market trends and project finance, which was extremely helpful."
It is no secret that the Global Energy Sector is rapidly moving towards Renewables, and the EEC is proud to work with GWU to support individuals building a career in the renewables industry. The Renewable Energy Market Trends and Finance course, which is taught by two outstanding lecturers from GWU, has specifically been designed to teach participants about Renewable Energy Market Trends, and the best ways to Finance Renewable Energy Projects. The course covers topics including Government Policies and Support Schemes; Microlending, Multilateral Banks and Crowdfunding; Project Finance and Case Studies and Financing Tools (including PACE, CREBs and QZEBs).
The Renewable Energy Market Trends and Finance 2-day intensive course has been in huge demand over the past couple of years, with more and more individuals looking to make the most of the career opportunities in the Renewables Sector. The course itself has received excellent feedback, with participants such as Nancy Jones, who attended from BNY Mellon, summarising that “The course covered market trends and project finance, which was extremely helpful.” Emma Bauer, who attended the course from engineering heavyweight Aecom, echoed these sentiments, stating that the course had “expanded my technical understanding of renewable energy policies, financing and the current market situation…” As well as the excellent content, Emma also praised the style and size of the short course; “I like that the course size was small since it allowed for participation and discussion”.
All of the EEC’s short intensive courses, which take place at leading universities around the world, are developed in order to provide a bridge between theory and practice. Participants leave courses with knowledge and skills that they can apply in the workplace, as recognised by Taslim Abdul-Salam who attended the course from Amazon US, and mentioned how he is looking forward to “applying the skills I learnt on the course in my day-to-day work”.
