The market for renewable energy technologies is booming – the EU intends to increase the share of energy from renewable sources from the current level of about 10% to 20% by 2020. The European Renewable Energy Council estimates that this will require investments of € 450 billion. With a current renewable energy share of 28% and rising, Austria is one of the leading European countries in this regard. Accordingly, experts in the field of renewable energy technologies are in high demand.
The Urban Renewable Energy Technologies bachelor’s degree program deals with the current issues in the energy sector – from the integrated generation of electricity and heat, via intelligent consumer devices, as far as renovation using renewable energy resources. Students learn how to develop and set up the power supply systems of the future as well as how to dimension these systems and combine them into an integrated system to provide the world with the power it needs. The program provides well-founded scientific knowledge that is extremely relevant for practical application. Energy experts from business, industry and related institutions ensure the continuous transfer of up-to-date knowledge.
The degree program is housed in the ENERGYbase building and the majority of course take place there. Austria’s most innovative passive energy office building is already directly making use of renewable energy technologies in an urban setting.
