Masters Degrees in Sustainable Development.

Program Background

The concept of the German “Energiewende” – literally, energy transition – has gained international attention. It includes a variety of measures that aim at making Europe’s largest economy free of fossil fuels and nuclear energy. In order to attain this, all areas of energy production and consumption will have to go through a transition process. Besides mobility and industry, buildings are therefore one of the key factors for a successful Energiewende.

Most of all, this implies re-directing from a mainly fossil-fueled energy supply towards renewable energies and a much more energy-efficient use of energy in buildings and urban areas. This is one of the largest and most urgent challenges of current urban development and other social disciplines.... [-]

The renewable energies are important for environmental protection. In WB the contribution of water energy is relatively good. The other renewable energies are up to now nearly not used. So the improvement of higher education here is needed. Renewable energy is highly important for the future economy in the partner countries in the Western Balkan region with limited energy resources in a growing economy and with the related environmental problems. Thereby existing studies are upgraded and new Master studies introduced, which are covering the whole field of renewable energy and management.

The study program in Energy Management and Sustainability Development will be developed under special consideration of the specific and combined aspects of energy, environment, economy, and legislation. It will address the issue of developing sustainable energy systems in a period of profound and rapid change of national and regional energy markets. The different renewable energy systems such as water and tide, wind, solar energy, chemical energy, geothermal energy, biomass, and biogas will be integrated into several courses. Highly important is the integration of economy to analyze the affordability of the different systems and the time scale for the realization of a special affordable energy system. Thereby the storage of energy in a battery or as potential or chemical energy gets a new dimension.... [-]
