A ground-breaking learning process that allows MSc in Energy Management students to dive into the challenges and opportunities in the energy industry.
The MSc in Energy Management - with the support of ESCP’s Energy Management Centre - provides an excellent platform to the world of energy. This specialisation gives students the opportunity to apply their learnings and skills in solving real-world business problems.
In the Company Consultancy Projects (CCP), leading energy companies benefit from the expertise of our students, and the guidance from our world-class faculty. In groups of multinational teams of 4 or 5, students make an in-depth analysis and recommendations for actions that can realistically be implemented by the client company.
The Big Picture
This year’s corporate partners included leading organisations in oil and gas, technology, renewables, sustainable mobility and transport.
By putting their learning into practice, our students help key players in the industry to identify gaps in the markets, maximise profitability, improve internal processes, and much more.
In this first year of our CCPs, students have:
- Identify data sources to optimise profitability for products outside of fossil fuels for an industry leading company
- Conduct extensive research and competitor analysis to highlight gaps and opportunities for renewable energy digital platforms
- How to enter new markets in the Middle East in the wind and solar sectors
- How to aggregate renewable heat technologies to complement a growing renewable energy portfolio
- In depth Analysis of the global view of PPA markets
- Identify business development opportunities for a global engineering company in the transport sector in Asia Pacific
- Market analysis and business development plan in Europe for a leading turnkey services provider to enhance infrastructure for sustainable mobility and transport
Projects are run in Term 3 (from April to June) - Students apply the learnings and skills gained through the first 2 terms of the specialisation.
- Preparation: Students are asked to look into the industry/ sector and familiarise with the challenges and opportunities available therein
- Kick-off: Project scope, deliverables and other key elements are agreed
- Execution: Weekly progress reports to tutors and regular updates and deliverables to clients
- Presentation: Final report and deliverables to client
“We encourage students to try out solutions and take a creative approach to the CCPs. Sustainability is one of the pillars of the MSc in Energy Management and ESCP Business School's strategy. Students are encouraged to put in place recommendations considering the circular economy and UN's Sustainable Development Goals” says Dr Georgia Makridou, Academic Director of the MSc in Energy Management.
We are delighted to announce that we will publish a series of articles to take you through each of these great projects, with testimonials from our students and partners summarizing the essence of these three months of intensive work. Stay tuned!
