Renewable Energy

Eventually the world’s reserves of oil are going to run out. In order to maintain the modern standard of living, alternative sources of energy need to be developed. Those who have taken a course in renewable energy can be prepared to face this looming crisis.

What is a course in renewable energy? It is a class popular with many engineering, business and science students. These courses discuss the technical, economic and social difficulties emerging energy technologies face. Alternative methods for extracting energy from the sun, wind, tides and currents are usually studied in depth. Other topics may include the impact of energy production on the environment, ethical standards and sustainable practices. Students can also learn about the market for energy and the legal challenges faced by the industry.

A study of renewable energy may reinforce existing mathematical and analytical reasoning abilities. These classes often emphasize an interdisciplinary approach that improves the understanding of physics, chemistry and environmental sciences. Students may develop an appreciation for the business aspect of the energy industry. They’re usually able to assess the market viability of new technologies and the impact they can have on consumer behavior.  

Fee and tuition costs vary by institution. Those interested in learning more should contact the admissions departments of colleges and universities under consideration for specific details.

Usually, graduates are qualified for a number of jobs in the emerging renewable energy industry. Those with an engineering background can find work developing new technologies with manufacturing firms. Business professionals may become green analysts, consultants and managers. Some specialists focus on advising investors on the trade values of energy credits and stock prices for green energy producing firms. Other careers are available as renewable energy technicians, marketing professionals, sales experts, and operators.

Some students may prefer traditional campus classes, but others might find quality coursework available online. International students and working professionals often benefit from the flexibility of distance learning options.

1950 - 2050: A century of Energy REvolution - understanding the transition of energy systems

TU Berlin Summer & Winter University
Campus Full time July 2017 Germany Berlin

Students interested in the technical and economical aspects of energy and resources. [+]

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 course provides a general understanding of the economic, engineering, and political aspects of energy transitions. Additional insight is gained by guest lectures from practitioners, and field excursions to conventional and renewable energy sites. Prerequisites The course is intended for all students with majors in engineering, economics or political sciences in an advanced phase of their undergraduate or graduate studies. Lecturer(s) Dipl.-Ing. Roman Mendelevitch Dipl.-Ing. Pao-Yu Oei Dipl.-Ing. Jens Weibezahn and guest speakers (academic supervision: Prof. Dr. Christian von Hirschhausen) The lecturers are research associates with the Workgroup for Infrastructure Policy (WIP) at TU Berlin. Roman Mendelevitch and Pao-Yu Oei are also affiliated with DIW Berlin – German Institute for Economic Research. [-]
