Cursusdoelen
After completion of this course students
  • have insight in the most important research methods for energy science and are able to apply them themselves.
  • have insight in the strong and weak points of these research methods and understand the level of uncertainties in using them.
  • can apply these research methods to analyse and evaluate options in the field of energy science.
Inhoud
This course covers:
  • Understanding and using the concept of technological learning for analyzing and prediction the development and performance of technologies over time
  • Process analysis by setting up energy and mass balances and performance calculations of complex technologies, using principles from Life Cycle Assessment and process technology.
  • Economic analyses of technologies and systems, using  knowledge from cost engineering.
  • Proper use of energy and other statistics for comparing and analyzing performance of e.g. economic sectors.
  • Using Input/Output analysis as a tool to evaluate impacts on a national economy, e.g. impacts on GDP and employment generated by deploying different technologies
  • Using life cycle assessment  to analyse  and evaluate the environmental performance of energy technologies.
  • Using (simple) Multi-Criteria Analysis as a system to combine very different types of information to provide an integrated evaluation
This course is an entry requirement for:
  • Internship Energy Science (SA) (GEO4-2509)
  • Master’s thesis (GEO4-2510)
  • Research Project SA (GEO4-2510) (old cohorts)
  • Natural Science Research NS (GEO4-2511) (old cohorts)
  • Energy Science Research NS (GEO4-2512) (old cohorts)
  • Natural Science Research Project (GEO4-2518)
  • Internship Energy Science (GEO4-2520)

Werkvormen
Computer practical

Algemeen
During the computer practical supervision on your work is available. In the second part you work individually on a comprehensive assignment covering all research methods.

Voorbereiding bijeenkomsten
You are expected to prepare the assignment before the weekly computer practical.

Lecture/tutorial

Algemeen
In the first part each week starts with an introduction to one of the research method (lecture) followed by working in couples on an assignment where you learn to understand and apply the research method.
