THE CALL FOR APPLICATIONS FOR THE SPRING 2024 ENERTRACKS HYDROGEN & PTX TRAINING IS OPEN UNTIL 24 SEPTEMBER!
Informed specialists play a crucial role in tackling global climate issues and shaping the energy systems of tomorrow. Although energy policy is primarily national policy, all national energy transitions also have a lot in common: international climate commitments, low carbon technologies, traded energy commodities, best practices for regulatory principles, market design, and more.
To foster international expertise and knowledge transfer, Agora Energiewende and its partners at the Renewables Academy (RENAC) offer the following training programmes, which can be combined or taken individually. The trainings are particularly aimed at energy transition policy experts employed by or affiliated with a think tank or other non-governmental organisation working in the energy transition field. Experts from civil society organisations and/or an academic bodies researching energy policy or another relevant field fall into the wider target group.
For a detailed overview on all EnerTracks programmes, eligibility criteria & timelines, please refer to information below and/or the Enertracks Programmes brochure.
EnerTracks Hydrogen & PtX training programme Application process
Agora Energiewende in cooperation with Renewables Academy offers a variety of trainings:

The application process for the Agora Energiewende-administered Fellowship, Study Tour and Hydrogen & PtX trainings opens twice per year (approximately 5 months prior to the start of the programme). Applications must be submitted as one single PDF document in English language.
Applying for Online Modules
Applications for the EnerTracks Online Modules are coordinated through a separate Call for Applications via our partners at RENAC. Applications for the Online Modules must be submitted through the RENAC website during the respective Call for Applications.
Before submitting your application
Please read through the different training programme descriptions, as well as the eligibility criteria and application instructions below. It is possible to apply for multiple trainings at once, as long as your application includes all of the requested information and materials.
NOTE: Simply selecting all trainings during the application process does not automatically increase the likelihood of being selected. However, if you are a good fit, you can be selected for multiple trainings. Bear in mind that we always consider the overall group heterogeneity including regional and gender representation when we select our training cohorts. Unfortunately, because of the high volume of applications we receive, we are unable to respond to inquiries regarding status updates. Potential candidates will be invited to an interview within 5-8 weeks of the application deadline. We will be reviewing applications for all trainings on a rolling basis and highly encourage early submissions.
