Postgraduate of Energy and Climate

University of Antwerp

Global climate change is mainly caused by emissions arising from our daily energy use. "Think globally, act locally" is necessary to trigger urgent and drastic changes. Energy use and solutions are local, but markets and technologies are global. [+]

Course Studies in Switzerland 2017. Global climate change is mainly caused by emissions arising from our daily energy use. “Think globally, act locally” is necessary to trigger urgent and drastic changes. Energy use and solutions are local, but markets and technologies are global. Finding feasible pathways to transform energy systems poses huge challenges for all of us. - On the one hand, drastic change requires fresh ideas, new ways of approaching problems and the discovery of unexplored paths. - On the other hand the solid laws of physics and eternal endeavours of human beings constrain freedom of action. The Postgraduate of Energy and Climate is innovative. The lectures focus on energy for the future: energy efficiency and renewable energy are studied from the energy end-use and services perspective. But the future is also uncertain: debated policy topics are covered by two lecturers, diverging in analysis and proposed solutions. The programme furthermore focuses on our common future: it invites a broad audience, from non-technical scholars to certified engineers, who are all eager to learn about new perspectives and approaches for addressing energy and climate issues.
