Since the discovery of fire, mankind has used various energy sources to aid our development. The energy system has been continually changing, as the economy and technology progress.
Today, energy systems are confronted with pressing global challenges: climate protection; economic and social development; poverty eradication; adequate food production; health for all; and the conservation of ecosystems, peace and security. A major transformation – an energy transition - is required to address these challenges.
Take a multidisciplinary approach to energy transition
Energy transition, however, is not a simple question with straightforward solutions. Instead, it must consider and balance technological, legal, economic, spatial and social aspects.
Anyone should be able to participate in this course. However, basic knowledge of energy transition will be helpful. The course will be taught at bachelors/masters level.
