Module Summary This module covers international energy issues and challenges, spanning the main energy resources and systems, with emphasis on the interplay of technology, economics and political economy. The overall aim is to provide interdisciplinary understanding of these topics, including the interplay between national and international energy and climate change policies. The dissertation project is an opportunity for students to put the skills and knowledge acquired during the programme into practice through a piece of original research. Each student works with a dissertation supervisor — a UCL researcher with expertise in the field — and develops a unique project.
Module Summary Building from the core module BENVGEC3 on modelling methods and scenarios, this is a practical hands-on module that will enable students to develop skills in the critical use of energy-economic modelling approaches. The practical focus of the module is on three tools: Students will then be encouraged to use these skills in their MSc thesis topics.
There are several ways you can share your data when you publish with Elsevier, which help you get credit for your work and make your data accessible and discoverable for your peers. Economic Valuation with Stated Preference Techniques: This means that learners will have the freedom to study at their own pace and order in which they will study the available modules. Students will then be encouraged to use these skills in their MSc thesis topics. It also prepares students to develop a clear research question and research design, select appropriate methods and samples and undertake a critical literature review — all essential skills for undertaking their dissertations. Pitfalls and Unresolved Issues.
In addition to the lectures and hands-on training sessions, there will be research seminars on a variety of modelling topics, as well as sessions for student presentations and for discussion of the final assessment questions. For background information on the two principal models used in the programme, see: Module Summary Energy and environment policy have been extensively implemented in the UK, often as a result of international agreements or EU policy, and often in fairly complex policy packages or mixes.
While UK policy experience in these areas is unique, there are nevertheless interesting lessons to be drawn in respect of other countries. Building on module 5, the aim of this module is to provide detailed knowledge of UK energy and environment policy, including its legal basis and how it relates to or is derived from international environmental agreements and EU policy and law. The module covers in detail the major issues related to energy and environment policy and law:. Module Summary The transition towards sustainable energy systems requires innovation and the diffusion of new technologies that are socially and economically acceptable.
This module explores different theoretical perspectives on the process of energy innovation and technology development, and examines real-world case studies to bring these ideas to life.
The module emphasises a policy perspective, examining the rationales behind energy research and innovation policies, and the practical challenges that governments face in fostering the development of new technologies. The module is taught through a series of lectures, along with guest lectures from researchers and practitioners, and with interactive seminars and student presentation sessions.
Module Summary This module introduces students to some of the main social science theories used to understand energy related behaviours and lifestyles and how they could be changed. Students critically evaluate and compare these theories and critically evaluate their usefulness for energy technology, modelling approaches, and energy policies and programs. The disciplines covered are: Teaching is largely through interactive facilitated discussion in seminars, rather than lectures.
The readings are primarily academic journal articles written in fairly advanced English; some readings include quite challenging and theoretical investigations. Module Summary This module is designed to help students develop an in-depth understanding of how sustainability can create value for businesses.
It introduces students to the necessary principles to measure, manage, and report corporate sustainability performance in terms of the Triple Bottom Line TBL. It also explores sustainability accounting, examines how and why sustainability should be reported, and assesses different strategies for sustainability improvement. Finally, this module addresses practical applications of TBL principles to management issues in different sectors: Module Summary This module presents an advanced discussion of selected topics in environmental economics.
Each lecture will be complemented by a tutorial or a seminar where students will either deal with a practical application of the techniques learnt in the lectures or have the opportunity to listen to an external speaker. Module Summary This module presents an introduction to Econometrics with some applications focused on the Environmental and Energy Field. The module starts from the general regression model and the cases where the assumptions in that model do not hold, progressing to Time Series and Panel Data and other specialist branches of this discipline used in applied work.
The programme makes use of relatively formal material although the aim is to use an easy-to-grasp approach as far as possible. This dual approach will help students to understand the mathematical reasoning behind applied concepts. Each lecture will be complemented by a tutorial where students will replicate the approach taken in a number of applied papers. Visit UCL's online application page.
