About

The UK Governments Low Carbon Transition Plan details how the Government plans to meet its 2020 GHG emissions targets. It predicts that as a result of its actions that 1.2 million green jobs will be created and 40% of electricity production will be from low carbon resources. It is predicted that £110bn of investment will be necessary to meet the targets as currently set out. The picture is similar across the EU and the rest of the world. There is a significant need for individuals with the expertise necessary to help meet those targets.

This MSc in Renewable Energy and Resource Management will provide the wealth of knowledge and skills needed for employment in a range of public and fast-growing commercial green sector roles.
