FEG3201 Introduction to Energy Systems 8.0 credits
Introduktion till energisystem
The aim of the course is to create an understanding of the development and dynamics of energy systems, and how policy instruments (related to e.g. climate-change mitigation and other sustainable development issues) influence the design and operation of energy systems. The course emphasizes socio-technological factors that affect the possibilities to modify energy systems, such as physical limitations, international agreements, energy policy constraints, and organizational, technical and economical considerations. The course will also provide course participants with the opportunity to build a network with other researchers active in the energy field, as well as gaining a better understand of how their own research topic(s) relate to energy systems as a whole.
