IESE second year MBA students have recently returned from Africa where they learnt about Kenya’s Energy Projects. The country is at the forefront of renewable energy implementation, and set on its target to achieve the first breaks in mass usage of clean energy on the continent. The vast amount of untapped solar energy in a country that receives 8 – 11 hours of sunlight daily, has the largest wind farm in the continent, hydroelectric dams that contribute about 36% of the grid capacity and huge investments in ongoing geothermal projects, reveal natural energy sources yet untapped and the abundance economic growth that can be unlocked in the country.
Welcome to the IESE Energy Club Blog !
Behind the IESE Energy Club, there is a group of passionate students willing to share their interest about the energy industry. In addition of the events we organise, we also try to share some insights and wrap ups on this blog. Using a blog is in our opinion the best way to communicate our thoughts and ideas outside the IESE community and who knows reach out to potential speakers for our well-known Global Energy Day! Nevertheless, an other source of insightful of news is our LinkedIn page ! If you like it, don’t forget to refer the IESE Energy Club Blog to your friends and colleagues !
With time and dedication, we would love to grow this blog and help the entire community to contribute.Each one of us has different interests, it can be solar panels, as those seen during class cases, hydroelectric power, wind farm or even hybrid cars ! The main fundamental here is to have a technology-agnostic club. We promote all type of sources, no matter the impact it has on the environment, the economy or society. Climate Change is a world-wide challenge that is embraced by everyone, no matter the industry or the country.
