The world is using more energy each year and this is projected to increase. Traditionally, energy has been produced in large energy production facilities but modern energy systems are typically more diverse. There are no longer just an energy production facility but also customers that both use and sell energy, so-called prosumers. This interaction between actors in the energy market creates opportunities to use energy more efficient and reduces the environmental impact from the energy system. It is therefore important to be able to understand the limitations and possibilities of the components and to optimize their usage within the energy system.

The aim of this course is to provide engineering expertise regarding energy processes, components within energy systems, and provide the tools needed to argue, judge and evaluate the possible solutions. The course is founded in prior courses in thermodynamics.
