Have you ever wondered how your community can make the transition from fossil sourced energy to more sustainable sources? This key issue is the essence of the master Energy for Society.


Have you ever wondered how your community (village, neighbourhood, company, institution) can make the transition from fossil sourced energy to more sustainable sources? This key issue is the essence of the master's programme Energy for Society.

The aim of the master programme is to educate Energy Transition Strategists focussing on local and regional levels of energy transition. Upon graduation you will have a broad competence base ranging from how to build (energy) communities, sustainable energy technologies, sustainable business models, governance, communication to spatial transformations. This will enable you to initiate and support local and regional energy transition projects entrepreneurially, i.e. help define and implement community-based projects that create social, environmental and monetary value. You will be able to catalyse complex bottom-up energy transition processes and foster change in people's 'energy behaviour'. Working with communities, cooperatives, clusters of companies, municipalities and regional organisations you will create synergy between different groups of stakeholders.

1st year

The curriculum compromises the following modules (5 ECTS credits each):
* Overview of Energy Transition
* Community Building
* Society in Transition
* New Business Models
* Governance
* Adaptive Leadership in Energy Transition
* Energy Technologies and Systems
* In Dialogue about Energy
* Spatial Transformation and Sustainable Energy Communities
* Research Methodology

characteristics

* There is no other Master's programme like it;
* You work and learn in close co-operation with your peers, professional practitioners, researchers and education staff using real life projects;
* You are part of a multidisciplinary group of students. Therefore you learn to work with a broad range of disciplines and fields;
* You interact with students of other energy-related masters;
* You interact with world-class research through the Energy Academy Europe.

curriculum

This environment will enable you to develop the knowledge and skills needed to:

* mobilise change in evolving landscapes by navigating a diversity of interests, creating visions and solutions leading to innovative opportunities in existing and new networks and if needed challenge the status quo
* co-develop energy transition strategies and support their implementation within multi-stakeholder contexts taking place in complex changing environments, leveraging relevant theoretical and practical knowledge
* integrate the acquired interdisciplinary knowledge for handling the complexity of energy community development
* make and evaluate judgements within the setting of energy transition and community development in the face of uncertainty
* engage with stakeholders (specialist and non-specialist audiences) using communication styles appropriate to the context
* independently conduct practice-oriented scientific research
* study in a manner that may be largely self-directed or autonomous and take responsibility for your own personal learning process while actively engaging in communities of learner

job perspective

There are many job opportunities for graduates of the Master Energy for Society ranging from profit to non-profit organisations. To name a few: business developer, consultant to guide local initiatives for utility companies, Sustainability Consultant for network administrators, Local Council Policy Officer, Area Director Energy Transition, Programme Manager Energy, Community Advisor in local construction projects or renovation projects, and Freelance Consultant Energy Transition.
