SEFEP gGmbH; Agora Ener­gie­wende - Think Tank

The world’s energy systems are changing. Renewable energy has moved from a niche technology to broad-scale adoption in many countries around the globe. Policy makers in many countries are struggling with the technical, economic, and political complexities of the transformation. Understanding these processes and challenges is essential for taking political decisions and ensuring a smooth transition to a clean energy system.
This is where Agora Energiewende helps: we develop evidence-based strategies for ensuring the success of the clean energy transitions in Europe and around the globe. As an independent and non-partisan think tank we share cutting edge, policy-relevant research knowledge with stakeholders in the worlds of politics, business, academia, and NGOs.
Agora Energiewende has been implementing training programmes since 2018. Participants can learn directly from our experts and one another during a six-week residential fellowship in Berlin, virtual or in-person study tours, or through specialised online courses in collaboration with our partners. Our training programmes help energy transition professionals gain a deeper understanding of energy economics, energy policy, and the transformation of power systems.
