Pioneering IENE Seminar on ‘Managing Energy in a Complex World’ Successfully CompletedLast Friday, November 26, 2021, a one-month educational seminar, organised by IENE in association with STRATEGY TECHNICS, was successfully completed with the participation of nearly 20 participants from Greece and South-East Europe.

Last Friday, November 26, 2021, a one-month educational seminar, organised by IENE in association with STRATEGY TECHNICS, was successfully completed with the participation of nearly 20 participants from Greece and South-East Europe. That was a graduate-level educational programme which drew professionals from a diverse background, including electrical energy companies, major banking, local and multinational law and accounting firms, and energy consulting.

This IENE seminar was the first of its kind, with the Institute joining forces with STRATEGY TECHNICS, an Athens-based strategy & organization specialist consulting firm. Energy Transition constituted a core subject of the seminar around which strategies and funding approaches and mechanisms were analysed and discussed. The current debate on climate change and mitigation policies were fully examined together with a whole range of appropriate technologies both current and under-development.

In addition to demonstrating the complexity of present-day energy markets -whether in electricity, oil & gas or renewable energy sources- the seminar covered at length the crucial role of strategy in dealing with uncertainty, anticipating mega-trends, charting business policy and overcoming adverse market conditions.

The programme comprised 40 hours of tuition by a number of top subject-matter experts, touching all aspects of the current and future state of energy markets. It also included exercises and teamwork undertaken by teams of students which were formed according to the interests and capabilities of the participants.

During the final session of the programme, the teams delivered some very high-standard presentations to the colloquium followed by a lively and informative plenary discussion. Topics addressed by the teams ranged from the Use of LNG as a Maritime Fuel, to Corporate Power Purchasing Agreements, to an Energy Transition Framework and its Implications.

Here are some feedback comments by participants at the end of the seminar:

“This seminar exceeded my expectations!”

“It helped me understand better the complexity in energy markets!”

“The interaction between the participants during the programme was both helpful and refreshing!”

 

Based on such encouraging reception, IENE and STRATEGY TECHNICS plan to repeat the seminar soon.
