Energy Policy for Sustainability

Creating sustainable energy systems is the defining challenge for humanity in the 21st century and one that requires professionals who fully appreciate the technological, economic and political dimensions of that challenge and how these are interlinked. Our programme aspires to educate a generation of leaders who will address these challenges, as well as train future energy policy professionals working in the public, private and not-for-profit sectors. It builds on a world-leading research base at the Science Policy Research Unit (SPRU) including in particular the exciting and forwardlooking work of the Sussex Energy Group (SEG), one of the largest independent social science energy policy research units in the world. This MSc provides broad-based interdisciplinary social science training, exploring the complex and interlinked dimensions of climate and energy policy. The course focuses on the opportunities, challenges and constraints associated with transitions to low-carbon energy systems in both the developed and developing world. It is oriented towards real-world policy problems in a range of countries and draws upon the latest research and practice in this field.
