Scholarship Program Energy Transition for global climate protection

As of: February 2019

Objective and activities

More and more countries begin to decarbonise their energy systems using renewable energies - mainly driven by climate protection and technological development. They are confronted with technical, organisational and economic flexibility requirements, since wind and solar energy require a fundamental change of perspective in the operation of future energy systems. Experts in independent institutes (think tanks) who face the challenges beyond party-political and economic interests play a central role in this process. The training programme is tailored to this group of multipliers and aims at training them to become 'change agents' for the energy transition in their countries. In addition to economic and regulatory competencies, they also need the skills to shape political processes actively and effectively. The contents of the courses are prepared in modules and oriented towards the participants' needs. Experienced employees of Agora Energiewende and partners act as trainers and mentors.
