Long-term, sustainable development would be unthinkable without renewable energy sources and efficient use thereof. Europe is world leader in terms of environmental technology and use of renewable energy, and should strive to defend this position. In this quest, the MSc Program can render a valuable contribution by integrating our neighbours in partnership towards joint European action.
