Eligibility:

For single subject courses within Chalmers programmes the same eligibility requirements apply, as to the programme(s) that the course is part of.

Course specific prerequisites

Documented calculating skills, basic knowledge of energy transformations.

Aim

The course should give the student knowledge of a number of tools of importance for energy systems analysis. The course should also give the student knowledge of the present energy system and its environmental impact, energy resource limitations, different energy use and supply strategies towards sustainability, new energy technologies and their system consequences and possible role in future energy systems.

Content

The course gives a broad picture of the development of the energy system in the EU and in other regions of the world. An assessment of new energy technologies and systems that can be used to mitigate negative environmental impacts is also offered. The students are given tools to assess these technologies with respect to costs and technical potential. These tools include energy models and how these should be interpreted, cost-efficiency analysis, and investment analysis.

Organisation

The course consists of lectures, smaller exercises performed in the classroom, a visit to an energy conversion plant and a project.

Literature

Compendium and book (to be decided)

Examination

Written exam, project work (reported in writing) and visit to an energy conversion plant (reported orally)
