EEMI Begins Series of On–Campus Short Courses in Partnership with the European Energy Centre

January 01, 2015

In the early spring of 2016, the Environmental and Energy Management Institute (EEMI) will initiate a new education program focused on renewable energy. EEMI is undertaking the new initiative in partnership with the European Energy Centre (EEC), headquartered in Scotland. The new partnership will combine the experience of GW as a leading worldwide academic institution, with the vocational training expertise of the EEC that has worked for 40 years with major universities, leading global authorities and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP).

The educational seminars, launching in February 2016, are short courses designed for busy professionals who aim to up-skill in the renewable energy industry. The training is being conducted by leading experts in the renewable energy field who have more than 20 years’ practical and theoretical experience in the sector. The training seminars are open to all professionals and students, from those with technical backgrounds to others who have no prior experience.

The first two courses under the new program are as follows:
• February 24-25, 2016 - “Renewable Energy Management & Finance” course, conducted in the GW Center for Professional Development, 2020 K Street, NW – Taught by EEM Professors Michael Ware and Scott Sklar. Registration is open at:
