Why is it important to find a solution to this challenge?

Striving for a sustainable world, New Energy Coalition aims to boost the energy transition. A new generation of researchers and professionals needs to be educated to fully understand the energy system transition. That is why one of New Energy Coalition's pillars is education. New Energy Coalition collaborates with educational institutes and programs such as Energy College (vocational education institutes), Hanze University of Applied Sciences, and the University of Groningen, but also has its own business school Energy Delta Institute. Energy Delta Institute strives to educate and inspire as many energy professionals as possible so they can become the new leaders of a sustainable energy future. One way to contribute to that aim is by providing online courses. Online education is sustainable and has the advantage of being flexible in timing and location. Nonetheless, online courses are not very effective, as completion rates are generally low (about 10%). They seem to be especially unappealing to professionals, since they have a hard time clearing their schedule when the timing of a course is not set. Real-live courses have the advantage of drawing the participants away from their offices, thus ensuring a better focus. Additionally, they provide networking opportunities with fellow participants and lecturers.
