Current environmental issues, climate change, global social injustice, and their impacts have led us to radically rethink our current energy systems. We must take a step back to think what technologies we have available today. This class examines renewable energy through a Northern European perspective, focusing on energy policy, economics and security, geopolitics through a climate and environmental perspective, and even applying philosophy as an analytical tool.
