The largest upheaval in energy supply thus far has begun with the introduction of the energy transition in Germany: nuclear phase-out will make history in 2022 and the fossil-fuel phase-out is currently in preparation. The complete conversion of the electricity, heating and mobility consumption sectors to renewable energies is a topic that will keep us occupied for decades to come. Germany aims to become the leading market for renewable energy. This will create business opportunities for innovative companies in a national, European and international setting. Several of these young and dynamic companies are also involved in the course of this Master's degree programme. Find out more about the practical relevance of this programme here.

Because of this, there is a large need for highly qualified workers who not only have specialist knowledge in renewable energy and the energy market in general, but who work well in a business environment and can take on leadership and management tasks in a national and international setting.
In summary: this degree programme is for a Master's degree with a comprehensive understanding of the technical, economic, legal and political backgrounds for developing renewable energies and in which managerial skills are at the forefront.
