Renewable Urban Energy Systems is a part-time master’s degree program for energy systems of the future. It focuses on complex issues related to energy technology and the energy business. This degree program is taught in German. The degree program is intended for graduates of the Urban Renewable Energy Technologies bachelor’s degree program and graduates of other technical UAS and university programs. Students learn to:
- Analyze complex issues related to energy systems and individual plants, cities, or districts and develop solutions
- Analyze energy-efficient, sustainable, and complex energy systems and develop concepts for optimal use of different energy sources
- Propose measures for adapting existing grids (heating, cooling, electricity) for integration into decentralized production plants and ensure a high security of supply and supply quality
- Analyze different storage technologies and illustrate their integration into power grids with the right dimensions and with all essential technical system-related measures
- Describe environmental relationships as they relate to energy topics, illustrate the impact of anthropogenic interventions in energy systems, and select measures to limit impact
- Develop a supply-side and demand-side management system for an energy system (electricity, heating/cooling, natural gas)
- Optimize the use of different production plants according to economic and environmental aspects
- Develop and use measures to increase the efficiency of plant components, especially components of thermal energy systems
- Analyze existing energy systems and develop concepts for optimal use of different energy sources
- Quantify the impact of renovation measures in buildings on the energy system as a whole
