Renewable energy is a rapidly expanding sector. As its demand for financing and renewable investment grows, new approaches are being developed to meet it. The sector is directly linked to sustainability standards which require a different approach to assessing and managing risk. This can make working in renewables financing a challenge, and this course aims to give students the information and practical skills they need to navigate the sector.
Our renewable finance course is divided into two half-days. Part 1 of the renewable energy finance course is a broad overview of the global renewable energy market, exploring the dynamics driving the sector, the key players, risks, challenges & opportunities, and the regulatory and risk landscape. Part 2 of the course looks at financing and investing in renewable energy, with an exploration of key players, financing structures and renewable energy risk management. Our renewable energy finance course includes a short quiz at the start and end of Part 2 and a discussion of a case study on carbon credits.
