Intended learning outcomes

After completion of the course the students should be able to:

• Analyse and discuss practical examples of energy planning in industrial and municipal settings;

• Compare different national contexts in the area;

• Identify synergies between energy and other systems and the possibilities for creating or improving symbiotic relations

Course main content

The course aims to provide understanding about on-going projects in the area of energy planning, building upon Swedish experiences on the development of sustainable energy systems. The course comprehends three main activities:

- Discussion of practical cases about energy planning in different sectors and contexts;

- Study visits, where the students will have the opportunity to learn about actual on-site applications. The visits can include electricity companies (e.g. Fortum, Vattenfall); clean technology developers (e.g. ABB); CHP and Waste-to-energy facilities (e.g. Högdalen); sustainable urban area developments and smart grid applications (e.g. Stockholm Royal Seaport, Hammarby Sjöstad); use of waste heat for district heating purposes (e.g. SSAB); etc.

- Application of the lessons learned to a specific case in another municipal or industrial context.
