About this course

Aiming to better understand and contribute to the transformation of the energy system, from centralised, large-scale power production to local generation and storage, and flexible consumption?

Join this course and explore the implications of the evolution of our power system into decentralised, digitalised and secure power exchange platforms – which are more sustainable, cost-efficient end-user focused.

Together with industry thought leaders you will examine the entire energy value chain, from generation and transmission to the distribution to individual consumers.

Get equipped to be at the forefront of a new era of energy.
