Description of the publication

A number of different educational programmes to sustainably address energy related concerns in

developing countries have been initiated by numerous local, regional and international institutions.
The Programmes Energy and Environmental Management (EEM) in Developing Countries at the
University of Flensburg, and the Postgraduate Programme Renewable Energy (PPRE) at the Carl
von Ossietzky University Oldenburg are among the university programmes that continue to
contribute to solving these problems in sustainable ways. In the form of Yearbook, the EEM and
PPRE Programmes are assembling, on annual basis, a vast body of knowledge on how to deal
with energy and environmental concerns in developing countries. The overall title of the yearbook
is Energy for Sustainable Development Theses of International Master. However, each year will
have a different theme and the current yearbook is a collection of articles based on past master
theses dealing with sustainable energy planning and policies. It is organized into four sections as
