ES 212 Energy Systems

What technologies are applied in energy conversion processes, and what future developments will be critical to the global energy equation? While analyzing energy system technologies, consideration is given to ethical, economic, and environmental impact of their deployment. Electric power generation, residential energy consumption, transportation systems, and industrial/commercial energy demands are quantified and balanced against worldwide energy reserves. The course addresses technical aspects of energy systems, and explores the broad issues related to energy policies and societal influences. [V, W]
