Examination modalities

Examination: written only


- Emphasis is put on understanding of system coherence

- 5 Questions counting 20% each; for a positiv grade, at least 50% are necessary

- 3 out of 5 questions are analytical/quantitative examples

- Despite acceptance of a non-programmable calculator during the exam, encouragement to "mental arithmetics" and "rounding of (preliminary-)results" as well as "freehand diagrams without ruler"

- ppt-slides of each of the 12 units

- Files of several written exams of the previous years

Previous knowledge

- In general, there is no precognition expected

- Basic understanding of interdependences in energy economics shall be existing

- Analytical intellectual power

- Interest in actual developments in international energy markets are beneficial

- Attending the individual lectures is advantageous, because actual development in energy markets are addressed
