Module overview

This module explores the opportunities and challenges presented by the growing importance of the environmental agenda in the political, social economic and technological context. With increasing environmental awareness comes a need for commercially sustainable solutions to energy and resource conservation. The challenge lies in translating environmentally sound technologies into viable market solutions and business ventures - just because it is the right thing to do does not mean that customers will buy! Emergent new sectors present exciting opportunities, yet the very dynamism of such sectors, a nexus of new technologies, new markets, new networks, new regulatory practices presents risk too.
