"To ensure our core business, the supply of electricity in the national high-voltage grid and in developing our organisation towards the future, we put a high value on the next generation of experts who are thoroughly grounded in their field of expertise and at the same time able to oversee the wider context of their work. That is why we really value the interdisciplinary approach behind the Energy Academy Certificate"
