"Thank you a lot for this superb training! I liked your sovereign style and the many deep insights into the complex energy trading markets in Germany and Europe."
When does in-house training make sense?
You want to implement a new project with your team. But the change in the energy market requires a sound knowledge of new laws, products and more. Your team only has limited information about the conditions in the energy industry framework. You aim to develop solutions in the future. An open energy market seminar is too general for your needs because you and your team are looking for answers to company-specific questions.
We independently observe and analyse changes in the European electricity market on a daily basis. We transfer these findings in our energy market training sessions. We bring complex interrelationships to the point in a clear and understandable way. In the in-house training, we address your specific area and prepare customised analyses on request.
You are now in a position to tackle your project successfully. Your team has taken away new impulses and ideas and returns to their daily work with fresh motivation. It is now easier for you to understand changes in the energy markets and news on political measures better and to place them in the overall context.
