MAJ03439 Energy Planning and Policy

Most countries in the world, both developed and developing, view energy issues as a high priority. Concerns about global warming, sustainability issues and the like reinforce the significance and immediacy of energy issues.

Effective planning and policy initiatives are required to identify energy systems that are technically, economically, environmentally and socially feasible and responsible in their approach to the energy needs of society.

The Energy Planning and Policy major contributes to the training and professional development of people working or preparing to work in energy utilities, energy companies, environmental organisations, government departments, consulting groups and other national and international organisations dealing in energy and environmental matters, both in developed and developing countries.

Awarding of this major on an academic transcript also requires the completion of a graduate project in this broad discipline area.
