EGB213 Energy Systems Fundamentals

EGB213 adopts an integrated systems approach to the provision of energy services that are responsive to the global imperative for a transition to a low-carbon society in the 21st century. You will investigate the interactions between Earth's systems, energy systems and social, technological and economic systems. Within the context of system boundaries and interactions you will identify, analyse and evaluate existing, transitional and future energy systems and technologies. The main focus will be on understanding the energy service needs of people in different contexts and how to identify and optimise the integrated system and sub-systems through effective knowledge-driven decision making.
