Sustainable Energy

Course Overview

This survey course introduces students to energy systems, technologies, governance, and policies through the lens of sustainability. Students completing the course will develop a holistic understanding of how these components currently fit together, the justice and security implications that they create, and how they need to evolve as part to the ongoing energy transition. As part of this journey, students will develop skills for analyzing the state and trends of the U.S. and global energy systems, assessing energy production and consumption data, and evaluating options for delivering energy services in a sustainable and equitable manner. In addition, students will apply the material learned throughout the course to a real-life scenario of their choice and will be able to incorporate the results into their MESH project.
