Course details

This is the second part of the introductory module to CAT’s new degree Sustainability in Energy Provision and Demand Management and focusses on Energy generation, supply and demand in cities. This is a solutions focussed degree where a comprehensive knowledge and understanding of how we are effected by and how we affect our environment is key to enabling us to make future ethical decisions on an individual, community and global level.

This course examines renewable energy provision, the science and engineering behind sustainable energy, global and local energy markets, energy and resource management, and the role of factors across scales in achieving energy security and sustainability.

You will explore technical economic and social dynamics that underlie the development and management of communities and cities.

Lecture topics include:

• Energy (heat and power) current and projected in domestic and commercial buildings and in transport.
• Environmental impacts, sustainability and adaptation issues.
• Policy planning economic and social and behavioural aspects of the urban environment.
• Efficiency or demand reduction opportunities.
• Supply opportunities including from CHP, biomass, heat pumps, solar thermal etc.
• Design Build Finance Operation and Maintain solutions for different technologies.
• Specific phenomena of cities (e.g. Urban Heat Island, cooling needs, fuel poverty and equity issues, urban regeneration and transformation).

Studying this module as a short course enables you to become part of the wider network of masters students working on how to critically discern and assess the complex factors in the field of sustainability. The networking opportunities are excellent.

This course is developed and led by tutors from CAT’s Graduate School of the Environment.
