How will this course enhance my career?

This course will empower you to:

  • Understand how energy systems interact for an integrative, holistic view of global energy.

  • Spot and leverage opportunities to save costs, mitigate environmental impact and resolve security threats.

  • Design, build and execute smart and sustainable energy strategies for your business or organisation.

  • For academics, the course will enrich your research exponentially, opening up new avenues for investigation while setting global and integrated context for the energy transition.

How will I learn?

Energy Systems Integration is a Massive Open Online Course. The MOOC format gives you the flexibility to advance your knowledge, understanding and skills without taking time away from your professional or academic responsibilities.

Because learning is self-paced, you can decide how fast you wish to go, while

the modular nature of the course with clear learning outcomes gives you the framework and the clear objectives to help you maintain rhythm and drive your own progress.

What will I learn?

The course gives you an integrated vision of energy. You will develop an understanding of energy system integration as the coordinated coupling of diverse and different dimensions within the energy system.

The MOOC is taught across five modules that challenge you to:

  • pts, such as greenhouse gas emissions and prices.

  • Study the evolution of electromo

  • Explore the role and impact of regulation across a range of key conceivability and its impact on the grid.

  • Image the power systems of the future with a focus on infrastructures that can address technical and socio-economic imperatives.

  • Consider the role of the customer in energy system integration.

The multidisciplinary nature of the MOOC challenges you to explore a range of dimension across each module, as you build an integrative and holistic understanding of energy. In each module, you will:

  1. Identify the different elements of the energy system, such as power system technology, policy and regulation, energy markets, electromobility, and consumer behaviour

  2. Explain (or give examples of) how each of these elements interact with each other and contribute to energy system integration

  3. Assess the contributions of experts from different disciplines in the energy field, from engineering and economics to behavioural science

  4. Explain your (potential) role in the framework of energy system integration apply system thinking to your field of expertise
