World Bank's E-Learning Course on Energy Sector Strategies to Support Green Growth
The course “Energy Sector Strategies to Support Green Growth” covers essential aspects of Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency policies and how they can contribute to the implementation of broader Green Growth Strategies. It also explores innovation policies for the energy sector that can help countries to build domestic innovation capacity to diffuse existing technologies and to develop and deploy new ones. The course targets anyone wishing to pursue a more in-depth analysis on energy systems planning and innovation and it can thus be used to refine and expand existing plans for greening the energy sector, or to create green growth strategies from scratch.
By the end of this course participants will have a good understanding of the rationale for greening the energy sector and the opportunities and challenges of various policy instruments used to promote innovation, renewable energy and energy efficiency in developing countries.
The e-course consists of four modules of which each contains two or more lessons embedded in multimedia presentations, videos, testimonials, exercises, and quizzes that help broaden participants’ understanding of the topics in a proactive way.
