Intended learning outcomes

The overall goal is to provide different aspects on renewable energy resources and to provide a systems perspective on energy supply and energy demand. After the course the student should be able to:

  • Describe and understand basic energy concepts
  • Describe and contextualize renewable energy and other energy supply
  • Describe and understand technology regarding electricity, heating and cooling production
  • Calculate electricity and heat production from some technologies
  • Describe and understand technology and systems regarding distribution of district heating, district cooling and electricity
  • Explain and reflect upon the importance of system boundaries for different energy systems
  • Identify and analyze climatic and environmental aspects on different energy systems
  • Describe and understand means of control within the energy systems area
  • Describe energy use within different sectors
  • Reflect regarding the design of resource-economic and persevering energy systems
  • Through analysis find and assess arguments in presentations and conduct structured arguments within the area of the course
  • Communicate the result of learning within the area of the course both verbally and written

Course content

Science of Energy, renewable and non-renewable energy, systems and system boundaries, energy systems globally and in Sweden, production units for heat, electricity and cooling, distribution of district heating, district cooling and electricity, biofuels for transportation, climatic influence from different energy systems, energy use within different sectors.
