The course aims at broadening the students’ abilities to cope with analytic and strategic issues related to energy systems and management through systems thinking and modelling. The course has been developed with the general idea that this broad topic cannot be taught in a conventional way (lectures, written exam etc). Understanding of (energy) systems including managementaspects (such as organisation) is instead facilitated through examples dealing with various issues such as system analysis, technical energy systems, business strategies, new trends, economics and emerging technologies.
What is skill in energy (system) management, one might ask? One way to put it is: “…an ability to foresee and create new possibilities in the future energy system with efficient, economically and environmentally sound solutions...”
Since we thus have to deal with technology, economics and organisation issues in an integrated way we could also refer to it as Energy Business Management. It is therefore also relevant engineering skills for Sustainable Development. It is clear that analytical skills must go hand in hand with skills in communication and leadership.
