    The renewable energy sector is experiencing unprecedented growth and one of its greatest challenges is how to integrate renewable energy sources into the mix of energy solutions on a global basis. This need has created a substantial demand for new skills and increased training, especially in continuing education at executive levels. Furthermore, this demand applies to both technical and business professionals.

    Entrepreneurship in Renewable Energy utilises the complementary resources of two leading academic institutions – Ecole Polytechnique and HEC Paris – to deliver a dual-focus education programme that brings you up-to-date with the latest technological developments in renewable energy and teaches you the rules and best practices of entrepreneurship.

    The course is aimed at a professional executive audience. Specific categories include researchers seeking to start up ventures in the renewables sector, energy company engineers wanting to re-orient their careers, and technical staff in charge of renewable energy projects at public institutions.
