Fully Funded EnerTracks Fellowship Programme for Climate & Energy Enthusiasts from Developing Countries

Fully Funded EnerTracks Fellowship Programme for Climate & Energy Enthusiasts from Developing Countries

The EnerTracks Fellowship Programme: A small group of eight fellows is invited to come to the Agora Energiewende office in Berlin, Germany. Each fellow continues working part-time for their home institution while participating in training sessions that are prepared and facilitated by Agora Energiewende energy experts.

These multi-disciplinary sessions cover a variety of topics such as energy markets, power system flexibility, and research methodologies, among others. Supplemental online and reading material, as well as group discussions, complement each of these sessions.

With the support of their Agora Energiewende mentors, each fellow tackles one specific transformation topic of their choice. The topic should be relevant from the perspective of the fellow’s own organisation, with the intention of transferring the learnings into their domestic work.
