290 Fundamentals of Energy Efficiency

This course examines how energy is transformed into useful services, and then how to deliver the same services with less energy. Plenty of real-world examples will complement theories and generic approaches. Students may emerge from this course with the tools to professionally evaluate efficiency opportunities. The course may prepare students for careers in one of the most vibrant sectors of California’s (and the world’s) economy, including positions in utilities, energy service companies, and management of energy-intensive activities in a wide range of enterprises.
