  • 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
