The summer school is a 5-day learning programme that builds upon the thematic areas and projects EPG is undergoing, structured along 3 main modules:
Module 1. Energy Systems
Decarbonising the energy system is critical to reach climate neutrality by 2050. Within this module, significant attention is given to policies that prioritise energy efficiency and renewable energy, a secure and affordable energy supply and a fully integrated, interconnected and digitalised EU energy market.
Module 2. Clean Economy
As the EU is embarking on a transition towards climate neutrality, net-zero requirements must apply to the whole economy (energy sources, industrial processes, supply chains and infrastructure). This module will focus on industrial decarbonisation, innovation on low-carbon technology and processes, as well as resilient supply chains.
Module 3. Climate Governance
The aim of this module is to offer an overview of the international institutional architecture for climate change including political bargaining, policy-making and implementation by governments, non-governmental organisations, businesses and communities. Part of this module is the En-ROADS Climate Workshop, an interactive group learning experience that promotes greater understanding of the causes of climate change and the solution to mitigate it. Starting with the general picture of the foundations of EU energy and climate policy, the programme will move into more specific discussions on key energy topics, such as energy efficiency, secure low-carbon energy supply, energy system optimisation and industrial decarbonisation. Each session day will end with a board discussion on a predefined subject.
