Training Climate and Energy Transformation Experts for Tomorrow

Informed specialists play a crucial role in tackling global climate issues and shaping tomorrow’s energy systems. To foster international expertise on how to domestically tackle the energy transformation, Renewables Academy (RENAC) in cooperation with the Agora Energiewende 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 significant insights into the many facets of promoting the energy transformation: participants learn directly from German Energiewende experts, join excursions and discussions with key German energy stakeholders, and receive tailored online courses to enhance their climate and energy transformation expertise for tomorrow.

EnerTracks is made up of the following three training paths, which can be combined or taken individually:

1. The Fellowship Programme

A small group of four to six Fellows are selected to come to the Agora Energiewende office in Berlin. Over the course of six to eight weeks, the fellows have the opportunity to learn directly from Agora Energiewende experts on why, how and when an independent organisation can shape the energy transformation narrative. 

Who can apply?
