Business in Energy Systems

The energy market is changing very rapidly. What used to be a centralised market with few players has turned into a much more decentralised market where traditional users can become producers as well. Technical developments rapidly follow each other, and ICT is becoming more and more integrated into the traditional energy network. Next to these technological developments, the regulatory and political context is evolving as well. International agreements, European legislation and national policies influence day-to-day business in the energy sector while we are making a transition towards a more sustainable world. Managers working in the energy sector of the future need to know about the key issues in both the area of technology and the market if they want to successfully guide the transition process. At the same time they will need to realize benefits for their organisations according to the principle of people, planet, profit.

If you are a professional or consultant working in the area of energy, TU Delft offers you the opportunity to bring your expertise to a higher level.
