The advantages of the adoption of renewable energy are now impossible to ignore. The argument has transitioned from whether investments should be made in renewable energy projects to the question of which technology will provide the greatest returns. The wide range of green technologies which are now available makes this particularly challenging, along with the fact that this is not a one-type-fits-all scenario.
Decision-makers require the sufficient knowledge to make informed and unbiased decisions regarding such investment. Understanding the financial aspects of renewable energy projects is important for professionals who need to evaluate the benefits of adopting renewable energy technology in the long term.
The European Centre of Technology (ECT-EEC) carried out a consultation in order to collect data on upcoming areas of interest for education, both in terms of topic and location. The consultation was directed at professionals across a broad range of sectors in the Renewable Energy Industry from 72 countries worldwide.
From the consultation, the most popular training topic that individuals require to study in the sector is Renewable Energy Management and Finance, which has increased even further in popularity as businesses become aware of the need to switch to renewable sources of power.
Due to the demand for the course from professionals worldwide, the Renewable Energy Management and Finance course is offered in two financial capitals of the UK and the capital city of the USA, Washington D.C. For the benefit of participants worldwide and its status as a global financial hub, the next Renewable Energy Management and Finance course will be taking place in London.
In order to respond to the needs of the London financial sector, the training has been designed as a 2 day short intensive course for busy professionals. The course is delivered by a financial expert from the City who has over 20 years of experience financing renewable energy projects and can advise on current government policies and available support schemes. The teaching will be supported by the use of international project case studies in order to implement the teaching in real-life situations.
The ECT is an independent educational body which has been in operation since 1975. The ECT promotes best practice in engineering, management and finance topics through training courses and conferences with the United Nations (UNEP), intergovernmental organisations and 21 universities across Europe and worldwide.
