Have you ever wondered how your community (village, neighbourhood, company, institution) can make the transition from fossil sourced energy to more sustainable sources? This key issue is the essence of the master's programme Energy for Society.

The aim of the master programme is to educate Energy Transition Strategists focussing on local and regional levels of energy transition. Upon graduation you will have a broad competence base ranging from how to build (energy) communities, sustainable energy technologies, sustainable business models, governance, communication to spatial transformations. This will enable you to initiate and support local and regional energy transition projects entrepreneurially, i.e. help define and implement community-based projects that create social, environmental and monetary value. You will be able to catalyse complex bottom-up energy transition processes and foster change in people's 'energy behaviour'. Working with communities, cooperatives, clusters of companies, municipalities and regional organisations you will create synergy between different groups of stakeholders.
