"The most exciting thing about learning is that you can see the result reflected on the day-to-day work! I hold UN-Energy Energy Compact workshops from time to time. I am thrilled to find that the quality of my workshop has improved! For example, I was able to give policy examples freely, and I now feel much, much more confident and comfortable speaking about energy and using technical terms "
