The Sustainable Energy Systems course is designed to equip graduates and working professionals with a broad training in, and understanding of, energy production, delivery, consumption, efficiency, economics, policy and regulation. These are considered in the context of the sustainability of energy supply and consumption patterns, both locally and globally. A unique feature of the course is its broad approach to the development of sustainable routes to the generation and supply of energy within which renewable energy is a key theme.
By covering the course in Sustainable Energy Systems, the student will be able to:
- Understand and evaluate alternative modes of energy supply, including fossil- fuelled, nuclear and renewables-based supply
- Appreciate the development of and constraints on carbon- and non carbon-based energy resources
- Understand the challenges and constraints on end-use efficiency of energy
- Appreciate the economic, policy and regulatory frameworks within which decisions on energy futures are made
- Be conversant with the problems of energy distribution and the constraints on present distribution systems.
- Critically analyse competing claims in the energy sector
- Evaluate options for energy supply, distribution, utilisation
- Articulate environmental sustainability of energy supply systems
- Analyse the technical-economic interaction of developments in the energy system
