The Imperial College London in collaboration with the Grantham Institute and the Children's Investment Fund Foundation (CIFF) has launched the no-cost "Clean Power Program," which consists of three open online courses about the opportunities and advantages of clean power, the tools needed to build a global low-carbon power sector and the challenges and solutions of the energy transition. The courses are taught by Imperial College London academics and the material was developed with expert input from Greening the Grid.

Through this course you will learn:

  • How to balance different political priorities to deliver clean power policies;
  • What benefits clean power implementation can bring to different countries around the world and, specifically, what they bring in your context;
  • What makes a successful, renewables-friendly policy environment;
  • How to attract finance for your clean power projects;
  • How to deliver secure and affordable clean power; and
  • How to integrate a high volume of variable renewables into a grid successfully.
