Energy Academy Europe | Energy Lecture: Basics of Energy

Energy Academy Europe is proud to announce the kickoff of the new academic year with the Energy Lecture “Basics of Energy”. The lecture will take place on the 29th of September and will be given by Luca Franza of Clingendael International Energy Programme (CIEP). This Energy Lecture is available for everyone who wants to know about global energy trends and energy transition, but would especially appeal to those figuring out whether the topic “energy” could (or should!) be a topic for their studies. It is also great preparation if you’re taking a course about energy related topics; even when you are already well-versed in this field, this lecture can give you a whole new perspective! The lecture goes back to the core of the topic ‘energy’, providing you with a broad basic understanding, therefore making the topic more coherent. You will develop more of an understanding on what energy is all about and how huge the challenge of energy transition is. Of course, the Energy Lecture will be interactive: you will get the opportunity to ask questions, put forward problems and discuss prominent issues.
