How to thrive through the upcoming energy transition?

The energy sector is undergoing a radical transformation – in Germany, in Europe, but also on a global scale. The rise of decentralized energy generation leads to a range of new players and disruptive technologies, while the shale gas boom lets us reassess the size of our fossil reserves. During our classes, we want to shed light on the emerging new energy system from a business perspective. We are less concerned with details of regulation and technologies  (although, of course, they matter and can trigger important changes), and more so with strategies that established players and new entrants pursue in their quest to benefit from the transition – or merely survive in the years to come.

This program will be conducted together with ESMT EMBA students.
