Energy Technology and Systems: Sustainable Solutions for Global Challenges

Course Package Outline

The conversion of primary energy resources along with the efficient utilization of electricity, heat, cooling, and other energy services remain critical issues towards the goal of achieving a sustainable society. Tomorrow’s energy engineers must be proficient with a wide range of renewables – solar, wind, biomass, and others – possessing skills related to how these resources can be harnessed both at the component and system level. Energy end-use in buildings and in industry requires careful consideration of systems for providing proper controlled environments for heating, cooling, and ventilation. In this package, students will be exposed to fundamental and applied topics in sustainable energy engineering, with particular emphasis on thermal processes, and will be provided with tools and methodologies for solving a variety of problems in Swedish and international settings.

Lectures, tutorials, labs, field visits, and project work are employed in an interactive manner, with focus on problem solving in terms of technical, financial, environmental, and end user issues. The course package is coordinated by the Department of Energy Technology.
