Energy and the public

How societies communicate and decide about energy issues?

The aim of this module is to present an introduction, which conveys basic knowledge of the subject and teaches competences and skills that technical students may benefit from in practice. The scope of the module is necessarily selective and by no way covers the subject in detail and complexity. It functions rather as a general overview that opens the door for students to follow up various specialized topics according to their own interests. The module is divided in three sessions explaining how to study public opinion about energy, how the energy governance in the EU in general works and how stakeholders can participate in the decision-making about energy issues.
