APPLY NOW

 

The fifth edition of Energy Policy Group’s international summer school will be held in Bucharest between 11-15 July 2022, with a focus on Smart Transformation in the Energy Sector.  

The energy sector is undergoing deep changes. These days, maybe more than ever, young professionals who are studying, working or are just interested in the energy field for its interconnections with the economy, society or environment, need a broader understanding of the sector’s modus operandi. To this purpose, global energy trends and policy making processes have to be addressed in their mutually influencing dynamics and assessed jointly with the energy sector’s greatest externality: climate emergency.  

The summer school is one of EPG’s flagships learning programs designed for students and professionals at the beginning of their career to offer them an in-depth knowledge about the energy sector’s fundamentals, a better understanding of the global energy trends, as well as the opportunities and challenges that come along. Consequently, a significant attention is given to decarbonization initiatives with clean technologies at the center of the transition to a less carbon-intensive and sustainable energy system. 

The summer school is a 5-day learning program that consists not only of lectures and seminars led by reputed international speakers, but also interactive activities and field trips to a variety of energy assets and facilities. It consequently aims to enhance theoretical knowledge by practical, hands-on experience.

 

Activities included:

  • Two webinars before the Summer School starts in May and June
  • Expert-run sessions on energy-related topics
  • En-ROADS Climate Workshop
  • Energy documentary screening
  • Field trips to energy facilities/assets
