Experience with the MBA Renwables

"I was able to study from all over the world, with class mates from all over the world. Flexible but not anonymous at all".

Advice for future students

"Choose the tasks for the group work you are interested in, not the ones which seem to be the easiest for you! The groups are generally quite strong and you can get so much out of it".

Abstract of the thesis:
The master thesis outlines current framework conditions for new pumped hydro storage plants and identifies needs for improvement in order to increase profitability prospects for an infrastructure needed within a future energy system based on renewable energy. To come up with specific suggestions, the author analysed a wide range of incentives and political reform options.
