What will I learn?

On this course you will examine renewable energy provision, the science and engineering behind sustainable energy, global and local energy markets, energy and resource management, and the role of decision-makers at different levels in achieving energy security and sustainability. Explore energy technologies and new advances in energy storage, smart grids and meters, and gain practical experience in effective energy management through computer modelling, data collection and analysis. Studying Sustainability in Energy Provision and Demand Management will help you to:

  • Develop your technical evaluation skills to become systematic, logical, iterative and imaginative in order that you can make sound judgements within the limits of uncertainty and incomplete data.
  • Reflect critically on the causes, seriousness and urgency of environmental and climatic change with respect to how these factors influence thinking on sustainability and adaptation.
  • Hone your ability to identify and appraise the complex influences that technical, political, legal, social, cultural and non-cultural factors have on the demand, use, provision and supply of energy.
  • Become a self-reflective practitioner or researcher who can communicate evidence and conclusions clearly to specialist and non-specialist audiences.

This course is created and delivered by CAT and validated by the University of East London. Students can also take the course as a PgCert and PgDip.
