IDS.521 Energy Systems and Climate Change Mitigation


Class Info

Reviews the contributions of energy systems to global greenhouse gas emissions, and the levers for reducing those emissions. Lectures and projects focus on evaluating energy systems against climate policy goals, using performance metrics such as cost, carbon intensity, and others. Student projects explore pathways for realizing emissions reduction scenarios. Projects address the climate change mitigation potential of energy technologies, technological and behavioral change trajectories, and technology and policy portfolios.

This class has no prerequisites.

IDS.521 will be offered this semester (Fall 2019). It is instructed by J. Trancik.

Lecture occurs 11:00 AM to 12:30 PM on Tuesdays and Thursdays in 8-205.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.
