Introduction

The field of energy is undergoing drastic transformations: substantial increase in the use of renewable sources; appearance of more efficient systems including the joint generation of electricity and heat, and creation of market structures using new forms of contracting.

According to most studies, due to the growth of developing countries, mainly China and India, world energy consumption will double in the year 2050. Taking into account that fossil fuel reserves are limited and that the cost of their extraction will increase, the doubling of consumption in just a few decades, will force the use of all possible energy sources, the widest possible use of renewables, the most moderate and safest possible use of energy nuclear, and the development of cleaner combustion technologies for coal and the capture and storage of the CO2 emitted.

To make the development and implementation of new energy technologies viable and to optimize the daily management of systems and installations, an increasing number of professionals are required who have a solid specific training in the set of current energy technologies and, in addition, knowledge of analysis and technical-economic management of energy systems and installations, as well as evaluation of their environmental impact. The Master's Degree in Energy Technology for Sustainable Development trains engineers and graduates from branches related to energy in all these aspects in an integral way.
