Energy trading in China is on the rise as the liberalisation of the energy markets progresses.
The German energy market and especially its mechanisms and strategies of the energy transition (“Energiewende”) serve as a role model for a successful integration of new structures.

Energy Brainpool offers a 4-day Intensive Training: Certified Chinese Energy Trader on four dates in Germany and China. Participants will learn the principles and mechanisms of liberalised energy markets as well take part in a practical computer-based trading simulation and thereby gain knowledge of how an energy trader operates.
