Drive Transition in the Energy System, From the Supply Side to the Demand Side and Its Governance

Climate change and energy pose formidable challenges on global, regional, and local scales in the 21st century. Two-thirds of global greenhouse gas emissions are due to energy. Ensuring emissions-free, affordable, and secure energy for all requires a strong commitment to change from governments, companies, and civil society. The MSc Energy Business & Climate Strategy (MEBCS) program at GEM addresses the pressing issues of sustainable development, energy, and the natural environment, preparing students to drive transition in the energy system, from the supply side to the demand side and its governance.

Program highlights

  • Apprehend climate change (rather than sustainability at large), its urgency, (international) policy landscape and compliance needs, financial and competitiveness considerations, reputation and stakeholder expectations
  • Understand energy technology management from both the supply and demand side in order to meet energy needs in a climate-constrained world
  • Use advanced qualitative and quantitative tools and methods to accompany firms' zero-carbon transition building on best practices from leading EU companies
  • Courses are taught by GEM professors who are renowned experts in the field. MEBCS builds upon GEM's tradition of academic excellence. These professors have contributed to research published in relevant journals, advised businesses and policymakers, and developed carbon calculators, among other achievements
  • The course offers a direct connection with the Energy for Society Chair materials, and professional networks including large multinationals such as Air Liquide, Engie, and Schneider Electric
