A new era in Sustainable Energy 

In the global energy landscape, we notice tremendous efforts towards the incorporation of more sustainable electricity sources and a shift away from fossil fuels. Cleaner sources of energy have become a prerequisite in new installations and thus the new energy giants are renewable companies overtaking their fossil fuel based counterparts! A vital driver for these unprecedented facts is the belief that a global transition to cleaner fuels is the only chance we have of avoiding the most catastrophic effects of climate change. 

In this continuously changing scenery which is full of opportunities, energy companies are challenged to shift from vertically integrated monopolies to entities that will adapt to unbundled and strongly competitive markets. Renewable energy generation is the new player which requires a different approach, i.e. integrating different decentralised sources, energy storage and strengthening links with the demand side. Importantly, flexibility is the key parameter to ensure adaptation of a transitioning energy system to decentralised power production and regionalisation of the electricity sector. On the other hand, in the post-pandemic era green investments will spearhead global economic recovery and will constitute a significant part of economic recovery packages, alongside specific requirements. Therefore, the push for increased share of renewables, new "smart" power grids, increased storage options, electrification of transportation, hydrogen and energy savings are now more powerful than in the past decades.

As a leading European business school, ESCP is involved in shaping the future of the energy industry. The Executive Master in Future Energy (EMFE) at ESCP educates the next generation of leaders and pioneering thinkers in the energy sector through a unique style of business education. Built on the principles of its successful Energy Management predecessor, the EMFE programme develops leadership practice immersed in real-world challenges in the energy sector, building upon a diverse community of ESCP faculty experts and world-leading professionals.

The curriculum is developed through the expertise of our grown networks in areas such as oil, gas, renewables, electricity and others, which are at the heart of the EMFE programme. The programme will deal with cutting-edge issues, providing academic knowledge blended with research subjects and practical industry based insights, and offer a modern overview of key knowledge, concepts and tools that are required to succeed in today’s energy sector.

During the course of the programme, participants will have a strong understanding of the energy eco-system as a whole and the importance of innovation, project implementation and sustainable business practices. Completing the programme will allow participants to influence the strategic direction of the businesses and organisations they lead and be able to formulate a world view that incorporates these new imperatives.

As the undeniable impacts of climate change become increasingly apparent, I found myself driven to develop a skill set that would allow me to contribute positively to the future of our planet. I have always been convinced that the clean energy revolution is the game-changing catalyst that will redefine how we live our lives and interact with the world around us. The Executive Master in Future Energy (EMFE) blended programme at ESCP has not only provided me with the academic foundation I needed to immerse myself in this dynamic field but also inspired me to strive for a better tomorrow.

The diverse backgrounds of participants from across the globe, combined with the expert insights of highly qualified professors who possess both real-world and academic experience, have enriched my understanding and broadened my perspectives on the multifaceted challenges surrounding humanity's future energy needs. This collaborative environment has effectively complimented my civil engineering training, honing my critical thinking skills and enabling me to approach complex issues with innovative solutions.

Moreover, the European seminars have been an invaluable component of the programme, equipping us with both technical and interpersonal skills essential for success in the global energy sector. Engaging with various companies specializing in green energy and energy management, as well as visiting different power plants, has expanded my horizons and solidified my determination to play a pivotal role in shaping the global energy mix.

"The Executive Master in Energy Management is a highly practical programme for professionals in search of expanding their strategic thinking and industry know-how. Attending the modules in different countries allowed us to visit and meet different companies under different environments and cultures, further enriching the experience. Each professor brought to the classroom a world of experience and insight on the industry, as well as encouraged intellectual discussions, not just for personal growth but also applicable to our day to day work. We also received workshops on research, trading, and other fun dynamics. I am very proud to have been a part of this programme. As a lawyer from Honduras working in renewable energy, the knowledge and understanding acquired through this programme on foreign energy markets and different technologies has expanded my opportunities as a global energy professional."

Joining the EMFE 2022 intake, I was initially wondering if the programme would live up to my expectations, enabling me to deepen my understanding of the ever-evolving energy landscape. However, within the first few weeks, my doubts were put to rest. Each class unveiled a new, fascinating realm for me to explore, and the dedicated professors consistently made connections to current events, ensuring that our learning remained relevant and applicable.

In addition to the enriching educational experience, the programme also introduced me to an incredible community of individuals. From the committed teaching staff and management to the diverse array of students, I encountered exceptional people who have enriched my life in countless ways. Some have become cherished friends, while others have evolved into valued business partners.

Indeed, ESCP fosters an environment where synergistic relationships can flourish, paving the way for the creation of innovative businesses that have the potential to transform the energy sector. The EMFE programme is so much more than just an academic pursuit; it's an inspiring journey that connects like-minded individuals, empowering them to shape a more sustainable future together.
