The GrEnFIn Alliance intends to shape a new Sustainable Energy Expert, through a Joint Study Programme targeted to HE students and a Professional Module targeted to personnel actually operating in the energy job market. The enterprises will play a central role as a constant link to energy market needs for a sustainable growth of the economy, in identifying the expected learning outcomes, the key competences and skills of the professional figures to develop in order to meet those specific needs of the job market. The Module will target specific skills gap of the actual personnel working in the field allowing them to skill up to their profile according to the market requirements and supporting a clean transformation of the sector thanks to the knowledge of "green financial products".
The professional module will contribute to a new generation of green energy and finance-oriented professional experts through the cooperation of universities and enterprises, endowed with market experience. The green energy finance sector will benefit from the skilled professionals able to design Eu2030 energy and climate targets aligning business plans and investments management strategy, smoothing the transition from a carbon based to a renewable energy based activity. On the other hand the financial sector (at the level of the individual financial actors) will be able to count on skilled labor force able to i) assess its portfolio exposure to carbon-intensive activities and to estimate the largest losses that it could occur due to climate shocks, either physical (i.e. physical stranded assets) or transition risks (i.e. the late and unanticipated introduction of climate policies, or technological shocks affecting green/brown energy prices volatility in a short time scale), ii) price climate physical and transition risks in the present value of financial contracts and thus make climate-informed decisions on portfolios de-carbonization strategies.
