Master's Program in European and International Energy Law (MBL)


Germany is home to the largest energy sector in Europe and a forerunner in renewable energy deployment. Where else would you study energy law than in Germany’s capital?

For the fourth year now Technische Universität Berlin offers the advanced Master of Business Law European and International Energy Law on the EUREF Campus in the centre of Berlin. The course offers lawyers, legal practitioners and economists an excellent opportunity to gain expertise in the field of international and European energy law. Students will become acquainted with the technical and economic foundations of energy markets as well as all areas of law relevant for the value chains in the electricity and gas sector. The curriculum covers competition law, regulatory law and economic fundamentals inter alia.

Lecturers come from the international community (Germany, USA, UK, Russia, Switzerland, Belgium) and cover expertise in all relevant areas of energy regulation such as universities, European and national authorities (European Commission and National Regulatory Authority), international and national energy companies, major law firms, and courts.

The course is supported by the Institute for Energy and Regulatory Law Berlin (enreg.eu). The academic director is Professor Dr. iur. Dr. rer. pol. Dres. h.c. Franz Jürgen Säcker, editor and author of leading publications in the field of energy law. He is editor and co-author of the large-scale academic work Berlin Commentary on Energy Law (“Berliner Kommentar zum Energierecht”), which encompasses 4 volumes and more than 12.000 pages.

Course Objectives:

Among many different fields of law energy law is on the rise. Global climate change and the policy transitions translate into many areas of law: State aid and renewable energy promotion, emission trading systems, the legal framework for grid operation and last but not least the digitalization of the energy sector. But to understand energy law is to grasp the technical and economic foundations underlying it. Energy law is not only interdisciplinary in this classical sense, but also a true legal hybrid: At the challenging intersection of public and private law, competition and regulatory law energy law spans across the national, European and international level.

Our Master Programme gives lawyers and economists an excellent understanding of the complexities and intersections of energy sector. The programme gives students and future employees a distinctive profile and qualifies them for a leading position in the energy sector. Small groups of up to 30 students allow for individual and effective learning.

Regular excursions to relevant institutions and infrastructure operators are tightly built into the programme’s schedule. We believe hands-on experience strengthens the learning process and prepares students for their future employments Students will visit the largest electricity stock exchange in continental Europe, the EEX in Leipzig, the energy intensive undertaking AURUBIS in Hamburg, the photovoltaics manufacturer ALEO Solar in Prenzlau, the Vattenfall’s CHP plant in Berlin and the network operator 50Hertz in Berlin.

The EUREF-Campus around the Gasometer in Berlin-Schöneberg offers unique and attractive local conditions. Students who are the future energy experts learn in a close cooperation with leading enterprises and institutions located on the EUREF-Campus to become acquainted also with practical projects in the field of energy.

Curriculum:

The Master programme is taught over a period of two semesters. Studies are stretched over six modules. The first three modules are dedicated to the fundamentals of energy regulation. The general legal framework and the economic characteristics of electricity and gas regulation will be taught. Students will become acquainted with the fundamentals of energy regulation to deepen their knowledge in the last three modules. In the last three modules, energy law will be taught in depth. Legal provisions are conveyed along the value chain ranging from production, transmission/distribution to trade and supply. Each module is dedicated to one stage of the energy value chain: The 4th module is dedicated to the generation stage, the 5th module to the grid operation stage and the 6th module to the energy trade and supply. The master thesis due in the second semester concludes the programme. The theoretical knowledge is supplemented by the excursions.
