      Please note: there is a newer version of this course, available on the Climate Compatible Growth Home Collection.

      This course will help participants to understand what investments, when and at what scale, are needed in the energy sector to meet the growing demand for energy while meeting security, environmental and other constraints. Special considerations will be made for modelling the flexibility of the electricity system, to account for high renewables penetration.

      This is the June 2021 presentation of the course.

  • Course learning outcomes

    After course completion, you will be able to:

    • describe and differentiate between the large energy conversion processes and connect them to their resource needs, costs, performance and environmental impact.
    • analyse how alternative configurations of the energy system (resource extraction to energy services end use) can relate to sustainability, interact with the global sustainability goals and affect national energy security.
    • explain the underlying logic in key concepts in energy economy modelling, including whole energy system interactions, long-term GHG mitigation scenarios and system flexibility requirements for variable renewable integration.
    • understand how to reach U4RIA goals so energy modelling activities are accessible to key communities, retrievable, reusable, repeatable, re-constructible, interoperable and auditable.
    • competently use the Open Source energy Modelling System and FlexTOOL for renewables integration.
