IESE Energy Club Blog

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.

One minute we’re discussing an unknown renewable energy start-up in 2012 and debating whether it’s possible to value or grow this tiny loss-making business. And then we find out this ‘hypothetical’ company is none other than Holaluz – Spain’s first online green electricity supplier that’s about to go public and is valued at €160m!

London Trek 2019

What a week during the London Energy Trek !

Every year, the IESE Energy Club has been organising its trek to meet companies that are having an impact in our industry but also society.

This year, we were in London from Nov, 6th to Nov, 8th, relentlessly taking the tube, walking all over town and downing pints! Eight companies accepted to open their doors and give some insightful information on how they are performing and what’s the future of the energy sector.
