Welcome to the Department of Energy and Environmental Management (EUM) - Industrial Countries

The focus of the teaching and research work lies on the transformation from fossil energy systems to 100% renewable energy systems in order to limit the increase of the global average temperature to a maximum of 1.5°C without exceeding other planetary boundaries.

The research work is divided into different research foci. Three of the foci form the FossilExit research group (formerly known as CoalExit), coordinated by Prof. Dr. Oei.

• International Energy Transformation
• European/German Energy Transformation
• Energy System Modeling

They are complemented by two other foci:

• Energy Sufficiency, coordinated by Prof. Dr. Wiese
• Electricity grid modeling, coordinated by Prof. Dr. Hohmeyer

The master’s program "Energy and Environmental Management - Industrial Countries" imparts the necessary knowledge and skills to shape the energy system of the future. In order to cope with the greatest challenge of the 21st century, man-made climate change, it is essential to convert the global energy supply over the next few decades to 100% renewable energy sources and to make the provision and use of energy much more efficient.
