Module content:
The energy industry is facing an epochal change due to the energy transition. As an infrastructure industry where the market players are strongly interdependent as a result of the grid-related interchange, input from numerous fields of science and technology will be necessary in order to cope with the system transformation. Based on experience from the field of change management in the energy industry, we will discuss methods and processes from the areas of networks and trading, as well as the energy regulatory framework. On the basis of this knowledge, we will analyze and discuss current developments (smart grid/ virtual power plants etc.).
