Renewable energy courses in Australian and New Zealand universities
Renewable energy is a rapidly developing industry and its growth is dependent to a large extent on the availability of skilled personnel to design, install and maintain systems. Energy policy and planning is also crucial for the development of the industry and analysts are needed with broad interdisciplinary skills in technology, economics and social and environmental sciences. Energy efficiency and energy management are also closely related to renewable energy and both are part of the international effort to limit global warming and conserve fossil fuel resources. The demand for skilled people in all of these areas currently exceeds supply by a considerable margin. This article reviews the state of renewable energy education in Australian and New Zealand Universities and identifies areas where further funding and development are required.
