Hydropower will be at the centre of the decarbonisation of the energy system and thus of the energy transition because it is the only market-ready technology that can store large amounts of electricity and feed it back into the supply grid with high efficiency.
I have been looking for a continuing education programme for a long time that offers exactly what Life Long Learning at TU Graz does. Attending a part-time programme that is perfectly tailored to my job 20 years after graduating from my basic study programme is a huge asset for me, both professionally and personally. Despite the additional burden of further education, I have not regretted my decision at any point.
