EnerTracks Training Programme 2019 for Climate & Energy Enthusiasts

- To be taken at (country): Berlin, Germany.

About the Award: A multi-disciplinary approach on how to tackle climate change and the 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 organisation can support the energy transformation.
Individuals with nationalities from eligible countries (List of Eligible Countries is in link below) currently employed and working in the power sector for non-governmental and not-for-profit organisations, civil society organisations or in academics.
Value of Award: 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 organisation, with the intention of transferring the achievements into their domestic work.
