07 December 2017 | Mitigation

Throughout the months of November and December of 2017, Factor Energy is instructing the course "Renewable energies in the framework of the energy transition" together with the Latin American Energy Organization (OLADE, for its acronym in Spanish).

Hugo Lucas, Head of Factor Energy and CEO of Factor Germany, is teaching 3 courses per week to participants from different areas of training in the energy sector such as economics, engineering, regulation, politics, etc.

The general objective of the course is to understand the global and unstoppable phenomenon of the energy transition and to try to give a glimpse of how it will be the same for Latin America and the Caribbean.

The course will analyze the energy transition in the context of Latin America and will discuss in detail the application of the regulations of auctions and net balance, and finally it will analyze the new actors that will play a decisive role in the transition as the large corporations and the citizens.

The content of the course is the following:

  • The energy transition
  • Electric generation (and storage)
  • Renewable energy auction systems
  • Renewable auctions
  • Net balance mechanism
  • Transport and heat (and cold)
  • Coupling of sectors
  • Innovation in renewables in Latin America
  • New roles for traditional actors
  • Socio-economic impacts of renewable energies
