In august 2014 I spent one week at the APRAISE summer school in Ljubljana, Slovenia organized by Laboratory of Energy Policy. Beside interesting lectures, we had an opportunity to familiarize with Vensim software – useful tool for improving the performance of real systems, in our case environmental policy instruments. Summer school was well structured mix between theory and practice so we also had one day study tour. Since my area of work is hydro-power generation, I was delighted that we had possibility to visit Avče Pumped Storage plant. And I think it was great idea to combine it with the visit to beautiful lake Bled.
Beside interesting and useful lectures, I’m really happy I met so many great people from all around the Europe. Hosts were amazing, event was very well organized so I would definitely recommend similar schools to all curious students who are seeking for new opportunities.
