Added value

Relevant

Energy pervades all aspects of modern society, and energy policy forms a core component of foreign, security, environmental and social policies.

Practical

Graduates with comprehensive knowledge of and critical insight into the ever changing energy sector are increasingly in demand on the job market.

Unique

We are the only interdisciplinary energy studies program located in the heart of Europe.

Key topics

The environment

Society’s ever rising energy consumption has resulted in climate change and local pollution. But how exactly is the energy sector connected to these issues and what can be done about it?

Economic development

Access to affordable energy accelerates economic development and improves quality of life. How can we ensure such access for everyone?

Policy & decision-making

What are the key energy issues in various parts of the world? How do they shape the policy-making process? How can such policies be assessed?

Security & geopolitics

What can be done about dependence on unstable regions? How can stable supply be ensured? How should we analyze oil shocks and gas crises?

Acceptance & opposition

Local opposition and acceptance are key themes in energy policy implementation. How do policy makers, investors and local residents interact and shape the process?

Energy transition

The transition to low-carbon energy entails decentralized energy production, new business models, new laws, and new actors.

Markets & trading

Social, environmental and economic policies directly impact energy markets. Markets, on the other hand, shape such policies. How can we make sense of this dynamic?

Technology & innovation

How do current and emerging energy technologies work? How do their limitations restrict the possibilities of energy policy?

European Union

The EU is a very complex and influential actor in global energy relations. Few are able to understand it better than our graduates.
