Its objective is to give a deep understanding of the complexity of the current energy transformations in Europe and worldwide. The programme takes place in Berlin and Nice. The programme offers a unique, multidisciplinary approach which distinguishes it from other Master’s courses in the field of energy studies: It analyses the links between the different levels of energy governance, from an international to a local level, offering problem-focused learning at the crossroads of theory and practice. The one-year Master’s programme stretches over four terms and takes place in two study locations: Nice and Berlin Students who successfully complete the programme acquire 90 ECTS credits. The programme is structured into four terms: The first term (October-December) in Nice encompasses classes on the basics of the four energy modules (International energy governance, Economic energy governance, the EU energy governance and Energy and territories). Each module is complemented by seminars dealing with current energy issues. An academic or professional expert is invited for each event. For their second term (January-March) students move on to Berlin where teaching in the four modules continues in the form of workshops. Each module organises a half-day workshop with an expert. Students prepare the workshops in group work delivering papers on themes linked to the topic of the seminar (climate negotiations, energy stock exchange, the role of the EU interconnections in the European energy market, the EU funds and the territorial energy policy). To better understand the local energy challenges in the framework of the German Energy Transition Field, visits will also be organised in co-operation with local institutions and companies. Another focus of this term will be put on the methodology classes, one dedicated to the research work and the Master’s thesis, the second one to project management. In April students return to Nice. The third term (April-June) aims at deepening their knowledge on the four energy modules. A special focus is also given to the methodological support for the students’ work on their thesis including individual meetings with the academic supervisors. In the two simulations the participants will forge their negotiation techniques with regard to the construction of wind farms at local level and work out of a strategy for an international energy cooperation. Written and oral exams in June will conclude this term. From July to August students will work on their Master’s thesis. All along the summer, supervisors will be at their disposal to follow up their work. The defence of the students’ Master’s thesis will take place in Nice in mid-September.

The renewable energies are important for environmental protection. In WB the contribution of water energy is relatively good. The other renewable energies are up to now nearly not used. So improvement of higher education here is needed. Renewable energy is highly important for the future economy in the partner countries in the Western Balkan region with limited energy resources in a growing economy and with the related environmental problems. Thereby existing studies are upgraded and new Master studies introduced, which are covering the whole field of renewable energy and management. Thе study program in Еnergy Мanagement and Sustainability Development will be developed under special consideration of the specific and combined aspects of energy, environment, economy and legislation. It will address the issue of developing sustainable energy systems in a period of profound and rapid change of national and regional energy markets. The different renewable energy systems such as water and tide, wind, solar energy, chemical energy, geothermal energy, biomass and biogas will be integrated in several courses. Highly important is the integration of economy to analyse the affordability of the different systems and the time scale for the realization of a special affordable energy system. Thereby the storage of energy in a battery or as potential or chemical energy gets a new dimension. Many renewable energy systems are not permanently available and depend on the climate conditions or the day and night problems. Candidates with different background such as mechanical, electrical, civil, geological, environmental and IT engineering, or economical and natural sciences may apply for this Master program. The program will focus on the legislative and economic frameworks in partner countries and EU to promote energy efficiency and renewable energy. The wider objective is therefore the reform of the studies in the partner universities in the field of energy. The specific programme objectives are the establishment of new M. Sc. studies on renewable energy and management. The new M.Sc. studies are basis for the creation of a network of national and international universities and industry in analogy to very effective solutions in Norway. The program aim is to provide a solid background in the field of sustainable energy systems, both by illustrating the framework and mechanisms, which govern energy systems and markets and by developing technical knowledge of the most important energy efficient and renewable energy. Learning outcomes Ability to develop and implement original and creative ideas to ensure qualitative Energy Management and Sustainable Development; Ability to apply skills and knowledge and demonstration of specialized competencies in Energy System Analysis, Renewable Energy Technology, Advanced Energy Technologies, Energy Management and Efficiency, etc ; Having the knowledge and understanding of the areas environment engineering, electro-technical engineering, mechanical engineering as well as computer science.
