Cíle předmětu
The course identifies and examines the most topical issues and trends in the energy sector. Outcomes and findings of recent research projects carried on both the Department and external institution will be presented in this session. On successful completion of the course, students will be informed about the development of the most important research issues and trends in the contemporary energy industry. The current topics are reflected in the changing guest lecturers in individual course semesters. Emphasis in this course is placed on the students' active participation in discussions with guest lecturers. The course can be combined with Contemporary Trends II.
Výstupy z učení
The aim of the course is to present students latest concepts (energy justice, energy poverty, energy vulnerability…), which have been changing ways we think about energy issues. Various forms of “domestic energy deprivation”, which occur in the world, will be discussed. Although, in its most general sense, “energy poverty” could be described as a matter of “access” in developing countries vs. “affordability” in developed world, it encompasses various regional, national and local specifities. By attending the course, the students will be able to explain, what is it about; understand the most common causes and consequences of energy poverty with its health, economic, social and other implications; and evaluate energy poverty alleviation policies and measures through critical reflection of facilitating factors and barriers. As such, the students conceptual and analytical skills will be strengthened. The student´s workshop (held at the end of the course) serves as an opportunity to apply acquired theoretical knowledge to a given case study; increase his/her presentational skills; and confront his/her ideas in a debate.
  • Exact times and dates for the spring semester 2019 will be specified. Four sessions in four weeks are expected: 1) Is there a right to energy? Energy justice, energy poverty and energy vulnerability 2) Guest lecture - Providing modern sources of energy in developing countries: the role of social and cultural factors; 3) Energy poverty in the EU and the CEE countries; 4) Student´s workshop - Energy poverty alleviation policies and measures: case studies from the region
