Financing and Deploying Clean Energy
July 2020 – May 2021

Yale’s online certificate in Financing and Deploying Clean energy builds your capacity in the areas of policy, finance, and clean technology.

The world urgently needs leaders with this combination of skills; in 2017, the International Energy Agency estimated that $3.5 trillion per year in energy investments would be required until 2050 to offset the rise in carbon emissions. Of these, approximately $1 trillion per year must be dedicated to the deployment and financing of clean energy.

The challenges—and the opportunities—are both immense and immediate. To tackle them, all must come together to develop innovative approaches to how we produce, distribute, and consume energy. It requires a cross-sectoral approach and an interdisciplinary lens. It requires an informed workforce and powerful knowledge networks. And it requires sharp skills and a willingness to learn.

This is why the Yale Center for Business and the Environment (CBEY) developed this year-long, admissions-based online certificate for working professionals who seek to accelerate the financing and deployment of clean energy. CBEY has drawn on its vast network of professionals and on the expertise of Yale faculty to offer a unique program marrying academic rigor with practical skills.
