About

Besides analysing the present and expected future energy systems and technologies, the Sustainable Energy Systems programme at the Chalmers University of Technology covers the transition between them.

Overview

Global warming and fossil fuel depletion increasingly place the development of sustainable energy systems at the top of political agendas around the world. Major investments in new energy technologies and systems to improve energy efficiency and reduce greenhouse gas emissions will continue to grow the coming decades.

To meet this challenge this master’s programme,Sustainable Energy Systems at the Chalmers University of Technology, provides a state of the art education lectured by world-leading researchers and industry professionals in combination with access to unique research facilities.

By acquiring deep technical knowledge in the main energy technologies and by understanding how they interact with economics and energy policies, our graduates become experts in identifying sustainable solutions to complex problems in the energy field.

Programme description

The future will most likely mainly be powered by renewable energy sources like hydropower, bioenergy, solar energy and wind power, but in the process of getting there; society needs a bridge between the technologies of today and the ones of the future. At Chalmers, we are experts in the bridging technologies and systems that will characterize the professional careers of energy engineers in the coming decades.

Besides analysing the present and expected future energy systems and technologies, the programme covers the transition between them. With this, we offer world-leading education in technologies for clean and efficient heat and power generation, Carbon Capture and Storage (such as chemical looping and oxyfuel combustion), optimization and CO2 mitigation of chemical and industrial processes, efficient energy use in buildings, smart power grids for wind and solar power integration and bioenergy.

At a system level, we specialize in energy systems modelling and planning and in environmental impact analysis of the energy sector trough life cycle analysis, ecological risk and environmental assessments.Energy, is one of Chalmers Areas of Advance and tops the budget list for Chalmers strategic research and educational plan. Our faculty consists of world-renowned researchers like Christian Azar, Lina Bertling and Simon Harvey.

This unique, hands-on and state-of-the-art education in the area of advanced energy technologies and systems provides you with the proficiency needed to undertake energy engineering tasks that assess both technical, environmental and financial aspects.You will be able to not only master current energy systems and technologies but also get a close insight to the ones of the future.
