About this Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT) 

The aim of the course is to provide you with an overview knowledge of the electric vehicle business. The course covers the whole “value chain” of the business, defining possible business models, market dynamics, and the use of software created for electric vehicles. The course is therefore suited for different parties interested in entering different parts of the electric vehicles industry.

The VILT will be delivered online in 3 sessions comprising 4 hours per day, with 1 break of 10 minutes per day, including time for lectures, discussion, quizzes and short classroom exercises.

Additionally, some self-study will be requested. Participants are invited but not obliged to bring a short presentation (10 mins max) on a practical problem they encountered in their work. This will then be explained and discussed during the VILT. A short test or quiz will be held at the end the course.

He also worked for international consultancy and advisory firm DNV-GL, supporting private and institutional clients, respectively in the sale and acquisition of energy infrastructure assets, and in the development of regulation for renewable energy and green gasses.

His professional experience led him to provide risk assessment and advisory services around energy infrastructure projects for the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development and the European Investment Bank. Some of the key projects he worked on include the Trans Adriatic Pipeline, a natural gas pipeline delivering natural gas from Azerbaijan to Italy. He structured the commercial terms of gas transportation agreements for the pipeline, and

He lately structured the commercial terms and agreements for the sale of renewable energy across several countries in Europe for a variety of corporate customers across different industries, and developed business cases for the provision of flexibility services to power grid operators. He experienced first-hand the business models possible around electric vehicles and their chargers. This experience covered the use of electric vehicles’ chargers to provide flexibility to the grid, and the related business models. He had the opportunity to work closely with developers of software for electric vehicles and vehicle-to-grid solutions, gaining in-depth knowledge of the overall value chain of electric vehicles, and business models that can be created to deliver its full value to the grid and owners of electric vehicles infrastructure.
