EENG 8293 - Climate, Energy and Carbon Management

Environmental Engineering Part-time Studies Course

School of Construction and the Environment

Course Details

This course starts off with introducing the climate system components and energy and matter flow through the system, greenhouse effect, and radiative forcing. The most recent scientific evidence on the changing climate as well as the adaptation and mitigation strategies are discussed. Linking energy sector as the single largest anthropogenic source of climate‐changing greenhouse‐gas emissions to energy services, energy efficiency as well as the energy supply and demand side management form the bulk of the course. Students are further engaged in exploring GHG inventories, protocols, strategies and action plans for GHG reductions, offset credits/trading systems and GHG validation/verification principals.

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:

  • Understand the climate system and its recent changes, the carbon cycle, energy and matter flows through its components.
  • Explain greenhouse gas (GHG) effect, individual gaseous species, the difference between radiative forcing and effective radiative forcing.
  • Understand the process and importance of evaluating GHG over the entire product/process cycle.
  • Describe and define energy systems from resources to conversion and service technologies.
  • Discuss primary and secondary energy, energy efficiency and scenarios for world transition towards sustainable energy systems in 21st century.
  • Carry out calculations for energy consumed vs delivered using an excel spreadsheet- based proprietary model and energy consumed vs emissions produced for transportation fuels using GHGenius model.
  • Interpret GHG emission inventories and discuss benefits and drawbacks of different protocols, standards, strategies, and tools used in GHG estimates and management.
