These courses are aimed primarily at individuals considering consultancy jobs and/or those who have to evaluate the benefits of adopting renewable energy technology, as well as managers, directors and executives wanting to improve their understanding and approaches to the ever-developing energy management area to achieve measurable results.  The courses provide information on dealing effectively with the changing commercial, policy and social dimensions of strategic planning, budgeting, investing, and coordinating interdepartmental or intergovernmental initiatives.
