NIGK13005U Energy Systems and Climate Mitigation
MSc Programme in Climate Change
MSc Programme in Agriculture
1. Introduction: Basic energy concepts and thermodynamics.
2. Energy and economic development.
3. Renewable and non-renewable energy resources and energy technologies
4. Energy production and it’s climate impacts.
5. Energy systems management
6. Case study: Planning a renewable energy supply
The purpose of the course is to provide the student with an
overview and understanding of energy systems, the associated energy
technologies and their climate impact. Special emphasis will be
given to renewable energy technologies. A student having completed
the course will be able to:
- Understand and describe the interrelations between the climate systems and the energy systems.
- Describe the renewable energy technologies available to mitigate climate change.
- Analyze exsisting energy systems, at all scales, and their contributions to climate change and mitigation
- Evaluate the appropriateness of alternative strategies for transformation of the energy systems for climate change mitigation
-Contribute constructively to the design of sustainable energy systems at all scales
- Work in inter-disciplinary groups to solve problems related to energy systems and climate change mitigation
