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.
