SAE² 2016

The third edition of the SAE Summer Academy on Energy was held from 14th to 19th August, 2016, in Budapest, Hungary. The main goal of the summer academy was to make a medium term energy strategy for a fictional country and to modify this plan on the go according to a major crisis that affects the whole energy production.

The Academy included 9 professional lectures, 2 site visits and a 4-day-long task about making a medium term energy strategy for a fictional country, where the participants worked in groups. You can find the program HERE.

Besides the professional programs, we organized social programs to make the desired informal interaction between the participants possible and also gave a little overview of Budapest.

On the 3nd SAE Summer Academy on energy we could welcome 25 students from 10 different countries. The participants arrived from very different part of the field: There were student from the field of business engineering, international development nuclear engineering, power engineering, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering such as student form the field of energy or sustainability management.
