Energy Delta Institute

Since its inception in 2002, Wolfgang has provided lectures to students at the EDI. What started as a “simple” energy value chain training course, has over time evolved into multiple renowned master programs, in collaboration with the University of Groningen.

The Energy Delta Institute (EDI) is an international energy business school. Through a rich variety of energy training courses and networking activities EDI prepares energy professionals for challenges they face in what is a dynamic environment. EDI was founded in 2002 by GasTerra B.V., N.V. Nederlandse Gasunie, OAO Gazprom, Shell and the University of Groningen. The energy community has come to appreciate EDI as a platform on which both partners and participants can exchange energy knowledge. The changing energy world is forcing companies to innovate in order to stay competitive. In addition, the energy sector faces the possibility of a growing shortage of qualified personnel over the coming decades. The sector has only one choice: to invest in knowledge.

EDI’s energy training programs and events respond to this urgent need, focusing on the economic, management, legal and geopolitical aspects of the energy business.
