This programme offers a thorough knowledge of electricity from renewable energy technology with a special focus on electric power systems.

Electricity from renewable sources is one of today's main challenges. In many countries, the need for local electricity generation is high, while greenhouse gas emissions globally need to be significantly reduced. Solar, wind, hydropower or bioenergy can be solutions for both electricity and energy supply, which can be selected based on local conditions.

In many countries, the electricity grid is in great need of modernization. At present, it is a major challenge to be able to handle varying sources such as electricity from solar cells and wind turbines, both in terms of cable capacity and storage capacity. The smart grid is the solution where demand and generation can be matched by smart communication.

The program is based on electrical engineering with essential elements of renewable energy, communication, and automatic control. This means that you will gain broad knowledge and a good overview of the entire field regarding electric power systems and renewable energy.
