Urban Renewable Energy Technologies

Technologies for the


Energy of Tomorrow
The market for renewable energy technologies is booming the EU intends to increase the share of energy from
renewable sources from the current level of about 10 % to 20 % by 2020. The European Renewable Energy Council
estimates that this will require investments of 450 billion. With a current renewable energy share of 28 % and rising,
Austria is one of the leading European countries in this regard. Accordingly, experts in the field of renewable energy
technologies are in high demand.
The Urban Renewable Energy Technologies bachelors degree program deals with the current issues in the energy
sector from the integrated generation of electricity and heat, via intelligent consumer devices, as far as renovation
using renewable energy resources. Students learn how to develop and set up the power supply systems of the
future as well as how to dimension these systems and combine them into an integrated system to provide the
world with the power it needs. The program provides well-founded scientific knowledge that is extremely relevant
for practical application. Energy experts from business, industry and related institutions ensure as lecturers the
continuous transfer of up-to-date knowledge.
The degree program is housed in the ENERGYbase building and the majority of courses take place there. Austrias
most innovative passive energy office building is already directly making use of renewable energy technologies in
an urban setting.

Job & Career


The renewable energy technologies industry is one of Austrias fastest growing
economic sectors and a leading source of exports. For example, about 70 % of
Germanys biomass heating systems come from Austria. Accordingly, experts in
the field of renewable energy technologies are in high demand. For example, they

work as energy system technicians, plant and process engineers at power utilities,

are responsible for the engineering, construction, operation and maintenance


of renewable energy plants,

develop energy concepts,

assist interest groups and media in energy matters,

are responsible for the building services engineering,

plan heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems for buildings,

work as energy consultants,

develop monitoring concepts for the safe operation and output control

work as project supervisors or project managers,

develop studies on behalf of energy agencies,

are product managers,

work as quality managers to ensure compliance with applicable guidelines,


regulations and standards,

are hired as test and development engineers by research and testing institutes, or

advise customers of banks and insurance companies about available financing


options and grants.
