About this course

Looking to better understand the legal and commercial implications of the EU Clean Energy Package? Wondering about its impact on your job, organisation and the EU energy sector as a whole? Working to get your organisation fit for the new framework?

Thought leaders in the energy sector will help you translate the legal jargon into actionable takeaways tailored to your needs.

If you’re a leader in a utility company, transmission system operator (TSO), National Regulatory Authority (NRA) or the energy department of a government, EU or research institution, this course will give you a solid grasp of the framework and will help you position your organisation at the forefront of the transition to clean energy.

How does the course boost your career?

At the end of this course you will:

  • Have a thorough understanding of the content of the package in a historical, economic and legal context.
  • Have explored key issues such as capacity mechanisms, bidding zones, and harmonisation of network tariffs.
  • Be able to take part in the current discussion on the EU Clean Energy Package and intervene at European level.
  • Understand the links to your work, and be able to anticipate future benefits and challenges for your organisation.

Teaching methods and materials

You will be provided with digestible reading materials and video content, and will be able to take part in interactive online activities. A weekly class will allow you to directly pose questions to the instructors and other participants.

After three one-week modules and a buffer week for completing project activities, the course will culminate with two live panels in which high-level guest experts will address the issues and topics you and your fellow participants will have raised during the course.

You will work both individually and in groups on real life cases and other practical assignments.

Depending on your career needs, you can choose to follow the course at three different levels:

  • Novice to Investigator: 4-6 hours/week

  • Novice to Master: 8-10 hours/week
