Mastering Renewable & Alternative Energies

Dates & Locations:

26 – 29 August 2019, Dubai

The comprehensive, business-focused course is designed to provide clear independent guidance on market opportunity and risk to those deploying, investing in or regulating renewable power projects.

It is presented in language suited to non-engineering commercial executives and investors, so no prior knowledge is assumed or required.

Presented throughout in an interactive and market-focused way, the course connects the multiple market environment and project delivery factors that need to align in order that renewable power can scale up, integrate and make money: from the business, system and policy environment to the project development processes, finances, risks and returns.

Over 4 days, attendees are led through the key market and technological trends, through to the variables impacting the success (or failure) of individual projects and the integration of large amounts of renewable energy into dynamic power markets.

This market analysis approach recognises that the sustainable growth of any renewable power business requires the balancing of interconnected and potentially conflicting requirements, including reliable service, investor returns and public/political acceptance.
