The energy systems and the power grids of the world are undergoing a rapid transition. The advancements in computational tools have resulted in levels of efficiency, security, and reliability never seen before in the energy industry. Some of the recent developments such as decentralization of energy, decarbonization, electrification, digitalization, use of agile electronics and increased societal awareness and participation in power generation and storage are driving the revolution to create the “intelligent” (smart) and integrated energy systems of the future.
This series of MOOCs provides unique and multi-disciplinary insights on how to understand, design, plan and operate the intelligent and integrated energy systems in the rapidly evolving energy sector. The program focuses on four main aspects: technology, digitalization, policy and governance, and innovations for sustainable business, thereby providing the learner with a holistic view of the revolution in energy systems and power grids.
This program has been tailor-made by a team of professors from the Delft University of Technology and industry experts at the forefront of the revolution, guaranteed to take you on a journey that will:
- describe the complexities of energy systems and power grids, and the requirements and industrial impacts of integration, automation and optimization
- explain the technologies driving the change and provide practical hands-on experience in the use of advanced numerical and computational tools
- provide an in-depth analysis on the economic and societal impacts of changes in energy systems and the design of new interventions best suited for energy systems of the future
- discuss new market potentials for business models employing and utilizing the changes to the energy systems and power grids as opportunities.
On completion of the program, you will be equipped with skills to design your own complex energy system that is integrated with “intelligent” control with sound socio-economic planning and best suited for business opportunities in the global energy market.
