Informed specialists play a crucial role in tackling global climate issues and shaping tomorrows energy systems. To foster international expertise on how to domestically address the energy transformation in low- and middle-income countries, Agora Energiewende in cooperation with the Renewables Academy (RENAC) has developed a training programme: EnerTracks.
EnerTracks encourages independent thought and supports institutions working in the field of energy transformation worldwide. This training programme provides important insights into the many facets of what it means to promote the transformation of energy systems. Participants can learn directly from Agora Energiewende experts, join study tours and discussions with key German energy stakeholders, and receive tailored online courses. The aim of the programme is to enhance the expertise of climate and energy transformation specialists for a sustainable tomorrow.
The Fellowship Programme
A multi-disciplinary approach on how to tackle climate change and energy transformation globally through practical lessons, academic training and one-on-one coaching.
A small group of four to six fellows is invited to come to the Agora Energiewende office in Berlin, Germany. Over the course of six weeks, the fellows have the unique opportunity to learn directly from in-house energy experts on why, how and when an independent organization can support the energy transformation.
Each fellow participates in the training sessions that are prepared and held by Agora Energiewende energy experts in Berlin, Germany. These sessions cover a variety of topics such as energy markets, least-cost planning, and research methodologies, among others (see full course list here). Supplemental online and reading material, as well as group discussions, complement each of these sessions.
Furthermore, fellows also benefit from one-to-one mentoring from Agora Energiewende experts. With the support of their mentor, each fellow tackles one specific transformation topic that they choose in advance. The topic should be relevant from the perspective of the fellow’s own organization, with the intention of transferring the achievements into their domestic work.
EnerTracks is looking for dynamic, engaged and driven individuals working in the power sector who possess a high degree of intellectual curiosity with a sincere interest in tackling climate change issues and the energy transformation in their home country. Further selection criteria include:
