14255-01 - Vorlesung: Advanced Environmental Economics | Master | 3 KP

This course addresses topics from current research in environmental economics. The focus is on designing environmental policy with most applications stemming from climate and energy policy. The course will cover three important elements of designing environmental policy:
1) The ability to cope with complications in the short run, such as missing information about costs and benefits, market power or imperfect compliance;
2) The influence of policy on technological change in the long run;
3) The evaluation of policy targets: How to set policy targets under uncertainty about costs and benefits.

41684-01 - Kolloquium: Modeling in Environmental and Energy Economics | Master | 3 KP

This course focuses on model building in environmental and energy economics. We discuss the purpose of economic models, types of models, approaches for setting up theoretical and numerical models, solving those models, and interpreting their results. During the course, groups of students will together build a simple model and use it to answer an assigned research question. The course consists of online material and supervised group work.

49078-01 - Kurs: Research Design Master’s Thesis | Master | 3 KP

Writing a master's thesis on a sustainability relevant topic is the masterpiece of the MSD study program. Students are expected to use productively their acquired knowledge (in terms of methods and sustainability related content) for analyzing a specific topic. However, developing a research design that copes with scientific scrutiny and accuracy is by far not an easy endeavour. Weiter


Frühjahrsemester

10160-01 - Vorlesung: Environmental and Resource Economics | Bachelor | 6 KP

After taking this course you will know how to analyse environmental policy using the tools of economics. You will know economic concepts for understanding the causes of environmental degradation and for setting the objectives of environmental policy. You will be able to apply microeconomic theory to analyze the mechanisms via which different policy instruments influence the environmental behavior of firms. At the example of exhaustible and renewable resources, you will have learned how to analyze cases where present actions have long-lasting environmental consequences. Vorlesungsverzeichnis

53713-01 - Seminar: Environmental and Energy Economics | Master | 6 KP

The course will cover current topics in environmental and energy economics, ranging from water pollution, climate change, promotion of renewables to new designs for electricity markets.
Students will choose their individual topic from a supplied list and work individually on their seminar thesis. However, they will be required to connect their work to the general topical clusters of the seminar and to discuss the work of other students.
During the first weeks, some training on presentation skills and on providing constructive feedback will be given. Vorlesungsverzeichnis

50729-01 - Projekt: Training for Sustainabilty Research | Master | 6 KP 

Participants will work in small, interdisciplinary groups on pre-selected topics of sustainability research. Typically, the topics will be linked to on-going research projects of the research groups supervising this course. The group work will mainly build on existing studies; the student groups will assess and link scientific literature from the different disciplines and combine these studies to a consistent interdisciplinary review on a given topic. The emphasis is thus on combining disciplinary approaches. To this end, participants will get both a joint supervision focusing on how to combine disciplinary approaches and a group-specific supervision focusing on the topic set for the group.

It will cover dynamics optimization methods that are required to design optimal solutions for a sustainable economy. In addition, necessary tools to understand current research papers on optimal natural resource use, energy transition, environmental pollution, etc., will be studied. Vorlesungsverzeichnis
