Clean Energy Finance Bootcamp for Undergraduates



Jan 21: 4:00pm - 8:00pm ET
Jan 22: 8:30am - 3:00pm ET


Transitioning to a more sustainable energy system will help us improve human health and avoid the worst impacts of climate change. This transition will require technological and policy innovations, but it will also take capital! Finance is a key lever in driving the implementation of clean energy, as the availability and cost of capital is a key determinant in scaling renewable energy and energy efficiency technologies.

Dartmouth undergraduate students are invited to join Curtis Probst, CEO of the New York City Energy Efficiency Corporation (NYCEEC), for the Irving Institute's Clean Energy Finance Bootcamp. Over the course of two days, this bootcamp will help you understand:

  • Some of the financial techniques for bringing clean energy to markets
  • Basic financial models for evaluating clean energy opportunities
  • Some of the key opportunities and challenges faced in the transition to clean energy

No previous experience in finance or financial modeling is required, but participants should have experience using Excel.

Application Process: Students should submit this application form by MONDAY, DECEMBER 13 BY 5:00PM ET. Space is limited so please apply as soon as possible. We will notify you of your acceptance status by December 15.

Cost: A $10 course fee is required upon admission to the bootcamp (which includes three meals). If this fee creates a hardship, please let us know.

Location: Given COVID-19, bootcamp delivery will depend on current public health guidance, local regulations, and Dartmouth College requirements. The current expectation is that this bootcamp will be taught in person at Dartmouth. If necessary, it may be offered online.
