Course Overview

What is energy economics? It is a broad field of study related to the supply and consumption of energy in societies. It encompasses the study of energy resources and commodities. The underlying forces motivating firms to supply, convert, transport, use energy resources and dispose of residuals are also extensively studied.

Energy economics revolves majorly around energy policy. Energy policy is a method for addressing issues of energy production, distribution, and consumption. Various attributes of energy policy include energy conservation, taxation, etc. Energy and appropriate management of it is critical to a developing economy for its manufacturing, transportation and delivery functions.

This Zoe training course will empower you with an in-depth understanding and detailed knowledge of energy economics. The skills and experience gained will help you assume higher roles and responsibilities, thereby providing you with the required capabilities for career growth and progression.

Since energy economics is a global subject that needs to be addressed by most such organisations, gaining knowledge of international practices and concepts will provide you opportunities outside your current organisation, thereby increasing avenues and scope for growth.

Course Objectives

The main objective of this Energy Economics and Policy Masterclass training program is to empower professionals with—

  • detailed information and knowledge of energy economics
  • the required awareness and understanding of international standards and concepts that could be applied for organisational development and operational enhancement
  • the necessary skills and experience to train other professionals regarding best practices of energy economics
  • the experience and exposure to address appropriate aspects of climate change, energy policy, etc.
  • the required analytical skills to accurately assess supply and demand
  • the skillset and capabilities to work with various energy models to increase efficiency and overall delivery
  • the experience and expertise to assess risks and challenges and make changes for effective resolution and risk mitigation
  • the overall skill set and capabilities to effectively manage the energy economics for your organisation, thereby demonstrating potential and talent and increasing opportunities for career growth and progression

 Training Methodology

Training courses at Zoe Talent Solutions are framed with scope for customisation as per the academic and/or professional backgrounds of the training audience of each batch. This involves a thorough review of the training content before the commencement of each training session.

A highly experienced professional from the relevant domain delivers the training using detailed audio-visual presentations for ease of reference. The trainer also encourages trainee participation through group activities and projects. Role-plays, case studies, and experiential learning are also some approaches adopted through the training.

The above innovative model of training was conceptualised by Zoe Talent Solutions and is used for all their courses. This approach is called the Do–Review–Learn–Apply Model.
