Content

Energy transitions require technical, economic and social solutions to the complex challenges of decarbonization.

This new programme gives an overview of the diverse challenges, including technical and non-technical (e.g. economic, policy) aspects. Students are introduced to systems thinking in the context of energy systems and learn relevant methods for system-level analysis (e.g. GIS, energy system analysis).

Energy transition engineers are faced with the challenge of redesigning our entire energy infrastructure while ensuring continued access to reliable and affordable energy. To achieve this, we must understand how to successfully integrate Low Carbon Technologies (LCTs) into our current and future energy systems. This requires a variety of measures on different levels (technical, economic, policy), some of which compete with one another.
