Increasingly, the energy industry faces complex trades, uncertain economic conditions, more challenging to find resources and evolving technology. Here, the need for reasonable valuations and analyses further becomes prominent. It is only through informed analyses that companies and governments make good decisions and create value. Contrary to common belief, analyses that do not support decisions are by themselves worthless. In this Investment Analysis & Energy Project Management training course, we discuss principles of investment analysis and apply consistent valuation methods to the real problems of the energy industry.           

To create value in the energy landscape, we must first appreciate the risks and uncertainties. We then use the knowledge in a consistent decision framework. This Energy Training Centre training course will discuss the theory and practice by using computer models, such as MS Excel spreadsheets, to analyse and evaluate investment opportunities. In addition, we will discuss the evolving uncertainty and the dynamics of energy projects. This will ultimately lead us to value creation from competent managerial decision making.

This Investment Analysis & Energy Project Management training course draws on corporate finance, decision analysis, and investment science to analyse and inform the energy investment ventures. We combine the theoretical knowledge with hands-on analytical tools and use computer spreadsheet models. The training course is a mix of theory and practice, leading to practical critical thinking skills in project appraisals and investment analysis.

By the end of this Energy Training Centre training course, the participants will be able to:

  • Understand the basics of investment analysis

The participants of this training course will receive thorough training utilising various proven adult learning teaching and facilitation techniques, including lectures, discussions, and computer applications. The sessions are interactive, and we encourage active engagement in the discussions. At the heart of the informed analysis is clear thinking. This training course promotes economic reasoning and logical thinking through the discussion of real-world case studies.

All energy firms primarily run businesses. For them, creating value is the goal. With the technical and economic uncertainties, those firms that understand good decision making and invest in worthwhile ventures will be poised to succeed.
