The Energy Transition: Drivers, Challenges & Opportunities

The Energy Transition: Drivers, Challenges & Opportunities

January 19, 2022 | Online :: Central Time


This fundamentals-level program will review all aspects of the accelerating energy transition to dramatically reduce global carbon emissions, and how this transition is likely to affect all of those currently active in the energy industry — no matter what subsector (electricity, oil, gas, coal, nuclear, renewables), customer segment (wholesale, commercial, industrial, residential, transportation), or part of the value chain (production, delivery, consumption) it is of relevance to you.

The goal is for attendees to leave the course with a holistic understanding of what’s changing and why, as well as the business implications of technology innovation, emerging regulations, and evolving customer wants and needs. The program will kick off with the drivers of the energy transition, and then dive deeper into the key dimensions of change (e.g., digital renewable grid, transportation electrification, pressures on fossil fuels) and enabling technologies, including electric vehicles, carbon capture, and hydrogen. With this context, the course will conclude by exploring the commercial opportunities and financial risks posed by the transition, to facilitate consideration of the potential professional implications for each attendee.

Learning Outcomes

  • Identify the drivers of the energy transition and the primary dimensions of change
  • Discuss the economics and market prospects for key enabling technologies (i.e., EVs, battery storage, DERs, etc.)
  • Appreciate the challenges and obstacles of the energy transition, such as regulatory/legislative barriers, the interests of incumbents, customer inertia, and economic tradeoffs
