As part of its impact-driven strategy, the Yale Center for Business and the Environment (CBEY) launched a certificate in Financing and Deploying Clean Energy in July 2019 (FDCE). This non-degree program was created as a pilot for the University and is CBEY's deepest foray into online education to date. The FDCE program trains working professionals and develops their skills in four key areas of the clean energy sector through four core online courses and span across several academic disciplines in environmental studies and management, including law, political science, economics, engineering, finance, and management. The four core courses are Clean Energy Policy; Technology Transitions; Renewable Energy Project Finance; and Innovation. Our team is now looking to expand the breadth of the program by building and delivering two new core courses: Energy Justice; and Clean Energy Development. The mission of the FDCE program is to accelerate the deployment of clean energy and mitigate climate change. True to its mission to educate and inspire interdisciplinary leaders through pioneering business solutions to systemic environmental problems, CBEY wants to further grow its online programming, including but not limited to growing the current course offering of the FDCE program in the areas of Energy Justice and Clean Energy Development.
