There is a worldwide need for research, optimization and use of new energy sources. Companies and individuals are increasingly demanding the development of new intelligent solutions to integrate the bioclimatic approach and ensure that energy efficiency is increased.

This situation, coupled with the increase of renewable energy worldwide, implies the need for specialized professionals and technicians with very specific training in the development of these projects. In response to this need, the IMF Business School and Camilo José Cela University developed this Master in Sustainability and Energy Efficiency.

The curriculum developed for this Master brings together the necessary tools to learn how to identify energy needs and propose the application of techniques for saving and efficient use of energy as well as integrate the knowledge acquired in the field of sustainability and energy efficiency.

By conducting this training you will acquire a high level of skills in sustainability and energy efficiency, in addition to:

  • Analyze concepts and aspects related to energy issues: energy sources, energy technologies, uses and applications, environmental impact, etc.
  • Apply the current legislation applicable to the generation, consumption and saving of energy
  • Identify the energy needs and propose the application of saving techniques and use efficiency in: building, industrial sector, primary sector and transportation sector
  • To establish the measures of saving and efficiency in the generation, distribution and transport of energy
  • Generally perform the economic and financial management of energy efficiency projects
  • Design, implement and develop the different models of Energy Efficiency Management Systems
  • Integrate acquired knowledge
