Energy is becoming more and more a major cost factor for all the players in the energy business due to increased worldwide consumption on the one hand and on the other hand a need to restrict the production of greenhouse gases.

By 2030, the world's energy needs are expected to be 50% greater than today. Nowadays, much of this energy comes from non-renewable sources, such as fossil fuels- coal, oil and gas. These fuels are being used faster rate than they are produced and may be unavailable for future generations. At the same time, there is a need for a 25% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 to avoid serious changes in the Earth's climate system.

MSc in Sustainable Energy and Environment

Climate change is claimed by many authoritative figures, including the UK Chief Scientific Adviser, to be the greatest threat to our planet this century. There is a considerable body of evidence that now relates climate change to the global consumption of energy, and in particular, the use of fossil fuels to provide heat, power and transportation. Moreover, as supplies of fossil fuels reduce and become concentrated in fewer global regions, security of supply worldwide becomes increasingly challenging, particularly given the current growth in world population. The threat of international terrorism exacerbates fuel supply issues, and the introduction of new technologies presents new risks, real and perceived, technical and financial, which require careful management....
