MBL Energy Law

As a result of market liberalization and the growing impact of climate change, the energy sector is changing rapidly. Although the EU presents the prototypical example of this change, similar developments can be found in other regions around the world. The energy transition and the need to decarbonise affects many different areas of law such as state aid and renewable energy development, emission trading schemes, grid regulation and digitalization in the energy sector. But in order to understand the legal framework behind the energy sector also requires an understanding of the technical and economic foundations underlying it. Energy law is therefore a truly an area encompassing many different disciplines, welcoming input from those from various backgrounds.

Our specialised MBL Energy programme presents the main principles of energy market liberalization while also assessing the legal developments from decarbonisation of the energy sector and the rapid growth of renewable energy. We provide lawyers, economists, engineers and other professionals an excellent understanding of the complexities and intersections of energy sector, with a specific on the legal frameworks which underly it. This select programme gives up to 30 students a distinctive profile and qualifies them for leading positions in the rapidly-growing energy sector.

Course Structure

The Master program is taught over a period of two semesters. Studies are stretched over six modules taught consecutively through the course of the academic year. The curriculum covers all areas of the value chains in the electricity and gas sectors. Students will examine the European legal framework from upstream generation right down to the supply of energy to households and businesses, including transmission and distribution.

Accreditation

Part of sustainability is quality management. Quality should not be left to chance, but be the result of a continuous improvement process. The TU Berlin changed its quality focus from the quality assurance of individual study programs to the evaluation of the university as a system. The TU Berlin has designed its quality assurance procedures in such a way that the participating actors can develop themselves in a responsible manner and in dialogue with each other. System accreditation leads to the accreditation of all study programs offered by a university.
“The subject of system accreditation is the internal quality assurance system of a university in the field of study and teaching. The structures and processes relevant for teaching and studies are examined to ensure that they achieve the achievement of the qualification objectives and the high quality of the courses, whereby the requirements of the Conference of Ministers of Education (KMK) are the European Standards and Guidelines for Quality Assurance in Higher Education (ESG). and the criteria of the Accreditation Council apply.
A positive system accreditation certifies the university that its quality assurance system in the field of study and teaching is suitable for ensuring the achievement of the qualification objectives and the quality standards of their degree programs. Degree programs that are set up according to the specifications of the accredited system or have already been subject to internal quality assurance according to the specifications of the accredited system are thus accredited.” (Own translation after German Accreditation Council of 20/02/2013.)
Currently the final phase of the accreditation process has started and receiving the label of the system accreditation by the end of 2019 is possible. Please visit the webpage Central Evaluation and Accreditation Agency ZEvA for more information.
