This course focuses on policies to manage energy resources in a world constrained by finite natural resources and global climate change. It equips students with basic knowledge of energy and environmental topics and calculation methods, so that students can combine this knowledge with their skills in economics in order to address energy management issues at different scales – firm, national and global level.

The course highlights the importance of developing a long-term energy strategy, presents key indicators that are used to describe the energy system of a country or a firm and its environmental impact, provides the methods and tools to calculate such indicators, and outlines policy options for improving energy efficiency and promoting green mobility.

Through a number of case studies, where students can apply microeconomic principles to assess the ‘efficient’ solution to an energy or environmental challenge, the course will demonstrate that real-world solutions to these challenges require a combination of economic and technological knowledge in order to address political and behavioural barriers and achieve progress towards sustainability.
