Our consumption of energy through sectors transport, electricity, buildings and industry is currently responsible for 75% of anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions and are having an adverse effect on climate. The purpose of this course is to provide context and an overview of the transition from a fossil fuelled global energy system to one with net zero emissions.
Technical and non-technical professionals across the Energy and related Industries. The level of the course can be tailored to the specific audience.
- Appreciate the science of climate change, how human induced (anthropogenic) change is now the dominant factor
- Understand how the global energy system impacts greenhouse gases with the subsequent effect on climate change
- Develop an understanding of the energy transition journey to date including the role of global stakeholders such as IPCC, UNFCCC etc.
- Understand the four key sectors of transport, buildings, industry and electricity, how each uses energy and lend themselves to decarbonization (or not)
- Understand key aspects of renewable energy solutions, including how they can integrate together to replace the reliability of supply we have been used to from fossil fuels
- Understand the role of enablers such as carbon pricing/trading, policy and regulatory changes required to accelerate the transition
- Understand the impact on society and be able to be able to talk with knowledge of the key dimensions and metrics involved
- Included are a quiz and an energy transition game
- Course can be delivered virtually or in person
