Master Classes

The Master Classes will engage up to 360 professionals, experts and staff from Energy Agencies and Regional and Local Authorities across Europe and equip them with the skills and knowledge to foster, stimulate and develop sustainable energy projects in Europe. Designed to build the capacity, expertise and knowledge of energy agency staff, these Master Classes also present opportunities for networking with peers.

The Master Classes will be delivered in a blended learning format.  A one and half-day face-to-face session in Brussels is supported with two half-day online sessions.  The interactive tuition and training will focus on topics such as market facilitation and project aggregation, development and use of financial instruments, energy communities, one-stop-shops and other related topics. The format of the classes includes problem-solving exercises, workshops, case studies and guest lectures from agencies and organisations relevant to energy investments, blending online and physical meetings. 

Financial support (up to a maximum of €550) is provided to participants for travel and accommodation costs.  Participants who complete the Master Classes will receive a Digital Badge attesting their participation.
