The top 3 reasons to study in Europe’s fast-growing sector of sustainable energy
With economy and ecology no longer enemies, it’s an exciting and prolific era for the field of sustainable energy. We can now build sustainable energy solutions that come at a lower cost than traditional ones.
Europe is leading in many areas of sustainable energy. This is clearly illustrated by the fact that almost half of the European Union (EU) member states have achieved or were very close to achieving their 2020 renewable energy targets already in 2019. The European Green Deal, from Ursula von der Leyen (President of the European Commission), outlines a vision for the future where Europe aims to be the first climate-neutral continent by 2050. To reach this goal each region offers a particular speciality, for example, Scandinavia – where students interested in the best implementation of electrical vehicle (EV) networks can see how they have achieved the highest ratio of EVs per person globally. With substantial support from both governmental agencies, investors and the general population together with top-ranked universities and business schools – Europe is where a lot of inspiring new technologies and opportunities are emerging.
The Clean Energy for all Europeans Package is now complete and offers an excellent opportunity for Europe to keep their edge in this sector and grow their job market. This comprehensive update to the energy policy framework will expedite the EU’s transition away from fossil fuels towards cleaner alternatives
