Energy in Green Transition: Markets, Policies and Business Innovation


Following two decades of deregulation and a strong policy for de-carbonization, energy is undergoing rapid change. The energy landscape has shifted. Changing customer behavior, new technology, and increasingly global markets are creating two distinct energy worlds. The classic energy world has the indispensable task of ensuring supply security. Alongside it is emerging the new world of distributed energy solutions.

The course highlights the sources of these changes, and what they mean for energy policy, markets and innovative business reconfiguration.

This course and GRA 6837 CSR, Innovation and Strategy for Sustainable Business can be taken individually or be combined.
