Form of Study
German with some English modules (Please check on the curriculum tab to see a module overview).
March and October
Today the term energy economics refers to more than just power plants and electricity grids.
It has become a challenge much greater in scope, and one that must be addressed by society as a whole.
While Germany’s centralized energy system has ensured a reliable supply of energy and electricity over the years, it has also failed to fully consider factors such as environmental impact and long-term sustainability.
The aim of today’s energy “turnaround” in Germany (“Energiewende”) is to make the transition to a truly sustainable system of energy supply and management, primarily through the use of renewable energy sources and other energy-efficiency solutions such as smart grids.
Liberalization of electricity and gas markets
The liberalization of electricity and gas markets has stiffened competition and ushered in a new age of innovation in the industry. Greater de-centralization in today’s energy markets has also opened up a diverse range of new opportunities.
The knowledge and skills conveyed as part of the 7-semester Bachelor degree program in Energy Economics open the door to these exciting career opportunities. As consultants for renewable energy installations, utility companies or industrial energy consumers, or as buyers/sellers of electricity products and services – to name a few of the many opportunities – graduates can become part a dynamic industry of great importance to society today.
