CAS 2019


The program targets managers in the following organizations:

1. Utility companies are in a key position to leverage their physical infrastructure and social networks to facilitate the energy transition.

2. Public administrators are facing an increasingly polycentric system, as new players and technological innovations are challenging existing governance structures and regulatory frameworks.

3. Technology vendors are directly affected by policy and regulatory changes, creating an immediate need to align strategies and business models.


The Certificate of Advanced Studies (CAS) program consists of four intensive modules, each module lasting two days. Modules are supplemented by the latest literature and carefully designed critical reflection exercises to maximize your learning experience. Due to the modular design you can choose any combination of modules that best accommodate your professional needs. The CAS program allows you to retain full professional activity. We offer personal advice to match our study program to your specific needs.

«The GET program provided excellent insights into the diverse and interrelated aspects of the challenges of the ongoing energy transition.

I gained valuable learnings on the interplay of technology, business and regulation and how to best address these dependencies.»

GET allows professionals from different companies to come together in a common platform, providing unique networking opportunities and exchanges. I thus strongly recommend this course to all those who would like to contribute to the energy transition.»
