At the First International Congress on Environmental Sustainability, organized by the EIG Multimedia group, editor of Cambio16, a round table discussion was established on green and renewable energy, one of the most relevant topics in the world today. Francisco García Lorenzo, director of the Master’s Degree in Renewable Energies and Energy Market at the School of Industrial Organisation (EOI), was the guest speaker.
The issue of green and renewable energy has become a global urgency and the priority of many governments and organizations. The Paris agreement of 2015 marked a turning point in the fight against climate change and since then actions have been taken to contribute to renewable energy.
One of the most important contributions has been made in the academy, where attempts have been made to create an ecological culture. However, many people do not have the knowledge of studies that are being carried out at the level of masters and doctorate on green and renewable energy.
“I am going to ask a question: How many of you know the School of Industrial Organization? I am representing the Master in Renewable Energy and Energy Market, an initiative that contributes to climate change”, were the first words of Francisco García Lorenzo.
The EOI is the first business school in Spain that emerged in 1955 and has trained thousands of professionals. It was also the pioneer in teaching environmental education in 76.
“The essence of EOI is based on four pillars: sustainability, technology, entrepreneurship and internationalization,” added García Lorenzo.
Master of the School of Industrial Organization
EOI’s commitment and trajectory with climate change has been more than demonstrated since the year 76. That is why they have created the Master’s Degree in Renewable Energies and the Energy Market.
“It is a Master that we opened in the year 2000 and continues to this day and has not had any blank year, despite having gone through difficult times, such as in 2012, when many programs disappeared, because students did not enroll, but our Master could be maintained,” he said.
The Master is currently positioned as the first in renewable energy in Spain.
Topics of the Master
The themes addressed by the Master’s in the School of Industrial Organization are very varied and diverse, but all around green energy, renewable energy and climate change.
“We touch on topics such as energy context, policies, geostrategy, technologies, energy finance, mobility, storage, innovation, blockchain, project financing mechanisms, and we try to have a global vision of each topic and not only of Spain”, said García Lorenzo.
The students come out with a very broad vision of the sector that allows them to adapt to any situation that can help companies or governments to promote that energy transition, he added.
