Course Studies 2017 in Berlin Germany. Summer University block 3: July 24th - August 17th, 2017 Course price: 1.850 Euros 18 hours of class sessions per week, 5 ECTS credit points Topic Berlin is growing. By the year 2030, there will be 250,000 more people living in the city than there are today. This will bring with it an increase in the demand for housing as well as in requirements for mobility, the adaptation of infrastructures and the availability of resources such as water, energy, data and building land. Like many major urban centres around the world, this means that Berlin is also facing a wide variety of challenges for the future: the growing city, the aging city or the city in the midst of structural change all require inter-disciplinary and inter-departmental approaches if solutions are to be found. The Smart City approach aims to find solutions to the ecological, social, economic and cultural challenges faced by Berlin through the use of intelligent technology. Berlin wishes to preserve – and as far as possible enhance – its appeal and its quality of life.

Summer University block 3: July 24th - August 17th, 2017 Course price: 1.850 Euros 18 hours of class sessions per week, 5 ECTS credit points Target group Students interested in the technical and economical aspects of energy and resources. Learning Goal/Output Understanding energy transitions towards decarbonization on a local and global scale Understanding the political decision-making processes Quantitative methods for assessment of policy decisions Working in a transdisciplinary environment Course Components The course will include the following components: - Interactive classroom-based lectures and discussions - Group work projects and presentations - Quantitative modeling sessions in a computer lab using GAMS (General Algebraic Modeling System) - Guest lectures e.g. from academia, NGOs, think tanks and the political sector - Excursions to conventional (including coal mining), and renewable energy sites Short Description There is no dispute that an average global temperature rise of more than 2°C above pre-industrial levels would lead to severe environmental and economic costs for society. A major challenge in tackling global warming is the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, especially in the electricity sector. The “Energiewende” in Germany proves that a decarbonization of the electricity sector, in combination with a shut-down of all nuclear capacities is (technically) manageable and economically viable. As a result, learning-effects and reduced investment costs enable a market-driven worldwide roll-out of new technologies. In 2014, 144 countries already set renewable targets. As a consequence, the number of global renewable generation installations in 2014, outnumbered the combined number of new fossil and nuclear capacities. This... [-]
