- The subject itself was little boring for me- too general» (Good)
- I liked the course a lot, but the lack of background knowledge (i"m not from E) in some parts made it more difficult. It would be nice if a similar course were more hand made for MPSES, because a course like this is needed in that master program.» (Good)
- It met my learning objectives and was generally well organized and presented» (Good)

18. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- project doesn"t have any large meaning for the learning outcome. Other parts should be preserved»
- Gams and term paper»
- GAMS project»
- term-paper»
- GAMS project and Term paper»
- The whole programme is ok»
- the lectures»
- The term paper and the conference. »
- term paper, market game, GAMS but maybe one more involved project to actually be able to learn GAMS»
- The market game»

19. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- Lina"s lecture was little weak. It did not covered the areas that we should know, especially about the tutorials.»
- Add something like this into a compulsory course for Sustainable Energy Systems master. Or at least as a recommended course! We had to find it ourselves this year.»
- The course litterature. A page where all abbreviations are presented, and an index system to simplify when searching for things.»
- Better examples in lectures. Some of them are too complicated to be followed. I would recommend simple examples, and to avoid big examples with big data tables that are difficult to follow during lectures. The simplest ones were very helpful to understand the theory, like the one in investment in transmission.»
- GAMS software must have more time for biginners and atleast one more supervisor»
- the GAMS project»
- The exam was a bit to concentrated on price mechanisms from one lesson which was hard to catch up afterwards. Since I missed that one it felt like I couldn"t show what I have learned during the course. »
- More in class discussion opportunities about current markets. Maybe, more guest lecturers on novel market research»
- Give the market game more time, and explain the market more in advance. Give time to review the results, otherwise its pointless »

20. Additional comments

- there were many requirements to pass the course like project, term paper and presentation which was quite impossible for one to complete within short time. due to this reason many students skipped the course»
