The world is becoming acutely aware of the urgent need to resolve the many issues associated with energy consumption and climate change. Limited availability of fossil fuels and the need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions call for fundamental innovations in the global energy landscape. Sustainable energy and renewable energy technologies, such as bio-energy, solar energy, wind energy and hydrogen, play a key role in tackling these issues, especially given people’s determination to maintain or improve their living standards. This requires experts who deliver high-tech solutions with a human touch.
Research and Specialization The master’s programme in Sustainable Energy Technology is interlinked with leading research in developing, optimizing and integrating renewable energy sources such as solar, windwater, biomass and innovative energy technology such as fuel cells and smart grids.
Why opt for sustainable energy technology? New technologies have to be integrated into existing socio-technological networks. Tomorrow’s engineers and researchers will explore new forms of energy distribution, new energy market structures and smarter ways to satisfy the demands of our complex society.
