Join the sixth virtual EnerTracks Study Tour from May 31 until June 30 hosted by Agora Energiewende and the Renewables Academy (RENAC).

  • Take part in interactive energy transition workshops and lectures
  • Strengthen their leadership and analytical skills through group work and design thinking training
  • Deepen their knowledge of stakeholder engagement through lectures on Germany’s Coal Commission as well as an interactive stakeholder role play
  • Discover how to creatively solve complex problems through the creation of a decarbonisation roadmap for a fictional country
  • Complete introductory training on the numerical modeling of power markets and systems
  • Have the opportunity to sharpen their data crunching skills through an optional excel bootcamp

Upon successful completion of the programme, participants will receive a Digital Certificate and access to a selective alumni network of energy transition thought-leaders.

Overall, participants will be expected to dedicate approximately 60 hours over the course of this five week training. This includes:

  • Mandatory participation in 33 hours of live and interactive sessions, on average 7 hours per week
  • 6 hours of pre-recorded sessions
