The Program

This executive programme focuses on the development of new business models at a time of massive and disruptive change in the energy market. It has three main parts.

First, it looks at how value propositions are changing and how new value may be created in energy markets. Consumer focus is considered key to survival and success.Second, it addresses the role of energy companies in the changing energy landscape and looks at the innovation and leadership skills needed. Third, it focuses on the financial side of the energy transition: where will the hundreds of billions of euros needed for the transition come from and how can sustainable energy projects be financed.

Modules 1 and 2 are combined in the first week. In the middle of that week we travel from Amsterdam to Berlin by fast train. On the train workshops will be held on the future of mobility. Module 3 takes place two months later in London. In the intervening period you will write a New Energy Essay.
