Climate & Sustainable Energy Finance Summer Academy (24-29 July 2016)
The Frankfurt School – UNEP Collaborating Centre for Climate & Sustainable Energy Finance (The Centre) is becoming a leading think and do tank on sustainable energy and climate mitigation and adaptation finance. It is not only project implementation and applied research which makes us stand out, but also our knowledge transfer platform for local and regional training and executive education.
The Centre proudly presents the 7th edition of the Summer Academy
Now in our seventh year, our Summer Academy also offers a sister programme, our new Climate & Renewable Energy Finance e-learning course, comprising lectures on climate & renewable energy (RE) finance, different RE technologies in the energy generation mix, environmental economics, project financing and international climate policy. This is doubly exciting for our Summer Academy programme; not only has the knowledge and experience built up over the last five Summer Academies to offer an even more exciting new learning programme for this year.
One of the Centre’s primary goals is equipping developing and emerging economies with the necessary skills to gain access to clean energy and climate finance. To help achieve this goal, the Summer Academy supplies international decision makers, project developers and investors with technical and financial know-how through practical and theoretical coursework. To facilitate a more tangible experience the Summer Academy offers a number of evening social events, which includes an institutional fair to showcase your projects and institutions, a voluntary field trip to an RE facility, as well as a panel discussion with high-level individuals working in the field.
