A course of Certified Expert in Climate & Renewable Energy Finance
Climate Change is high on the agenda of governments across the world. The structural change of the global energy system is already underway. The new LinkEd e-learning course on Climate & Renewable Energy Finance enables participants to understand two different perspectives towards this issue. On the one hand, the course deals with so-called “market failures” that affect appropriate investments in the sector and shows the policy instruments which are available to correct those shortcomings. On the other hand, the course covers the project financing perspective with a focus on the specifics of Renewable Energy financing including policy and regulation.
The course provides applicable content that will help to achieve personal career objectives and make an impact on the bottom line of participants’ institutions. It is a 6-month part-time certification program that matches individual schedules. It is up to the participant when and where to study. This allows balancing a busy workload and family obligations with an intellectually stimulating programme.
The first Certified Expert in Climate & Renewable Energy Finance (CECRF) will start in March 2014. Registration is possible from December 2013.
