About This Activity

The United Nations estimates that 1.6 billion people globally lack access to electricity. Yet, we use more than 12,000 million tonnes of oil equivalent according to the International Energy Agency. We have polluted the very ecosystem that sustains us. Through a series of energy tours, guest lectures, and in-class discussions about case studies, this course will explore the various innovations in energy generation and distribution. Students will learn about the general financial structure to fund start-ups to large national level energy projects. In addition, students will learn about the important role engineers play in designing, developing and running world scale energy businesses. The overall need for innovation to reduce the impact we have on the planet’s changing climate will be emphasized.
