Fantastic external sources with clear and precise explanations from a graphical viewpoint.
Great range of industry expertise and professionals within the appropriate fields.

Very interesting course ! Very well explained but maybe needs updates on current news (even if it may be hard I acknowledge) !
Really well balanced between definitions, geopolitics and science.

A bit outdated and lacking in depth in the political analysis but still useful

Great course, although at times it was a bit more technical than political.

This is a very good course to grasp the fundamentals of the various forms of energy.
Admin detail: one week between exam-taking after two fails makes no practical sense and is detrimental to the timely completion of the course.
The course would also benefit from an actualization, with more analysis of recent economic & political trends:
- Oil market has historically been cyclical. Need an analysis of past cycles, and a fresh view on whether the current slump is part of a similar cycle, or a new era?
- America's insistence on energy independence, how/why Europe views independence differently, how China/India view their own?
- Current Middle-East politics Iraq-Iran-Saudi-Qatar, historical and current role of Saudi Arabia in the OPEC cartel, and the reality and dynamics of spare capacity within OPEC
Students should come out of this course with their own view of whether this is the last leg of the fossil fuel race (as hinted by Prof. Lucciani in the COP21 video), or just another bend.

Interesting insights but terribly uncritical. Nonetheless extremely useful for anyone who seeks to better understanding the geopolitcal and economic considerations at play in the production and distribution of energy (from a mainstream neoliberal perspective).

Course has good breadth and structure, exploring the economic and political side of international energy, however it would be good if a basic technical understanding of energy is incorporated.
Some material is rather outdated / inaccessible
