Knowledge
M_W001 The student knows the basics of theoretical background of energy policy development (including principles, objectives, legal aspects, entities responsible for energy policy). The student understands how energy policy instruments contribute to the development of energy systems. The student understands the problem of energy security and knows how key energy security indices are constructed. EN2A_W20 Activity during classes,
Test
M_W002 The student knows conditions that determine the development of energy policy, which results from the specificity of domestic fuel and energy market (oil, natural gas, coal and lignite, renewable energy, electricity, heat). The student knows main objectives of the Polish energy policy until 2030 (adopted by the Government) and key instruments of energy policy implemented in Poland. The student understands the European context of national energy policy and understand the environmental context of energy policy. EN2A_W20 Activity during classes,

Module content
Lectures:

1. Theoretical background of energy policy development – definitions, objectives, principles, legal aspects, entities responsible for development of energy policy
2. Energy policy instruments
3. Energy security and key energy security indices
4. Energy intensity of GDP production
5. Determinants influencing energy policy of a given country related to fuel and energy markets
6. Energy policy aimed to support the development of Renewable Energy Sources
7. Energy policy aimed to liberalise energy markets

Auditorium classes:

Development of a presentation on energy policy of a given country. Geopolitical situation that determines the national energy policy is analysed. The student analyses the instruments of energy policy that are introduced in a given country and calculates energy security and energy intensity indices. Then author’s evaluation of the national energy policy is carried out. Seminars are devoted to the presentation of the main findings/results. After the presentation a presenter answers the questions asked by the lecturer and other students.

Additional information
Method of calculating the final grade:

Mark in classes (S) and mark in exam (E) are calculated as follows: the percentage of obtained points is converted to the mark in accordance with the approved AGH Regulations.

The final mark (OK) is calculated as a weighted average of the following marks:
OK = 0,5·w·E + 0,5·w·S
w = 1 for the 1st term, w = 0,9 for the 2nd term, w = 0,8 for the 3rd term
