Learning Results

Modern technology systems rely on sufficient energy resources in order to operate smoothly. Energy plays an important role in modern life as a whole and, more specifically, in all product–service systems. The development of policies to encourage more efficient use of energy in organizations, implementation of suitable management tools and understanding of the interrelationships at work in the energy sector within the international economic environment requires all players to grasp both the meaning of energy and its properties relating to storage, conversion and conservation. In this context managers in organizations and businesses will need to have the skills to meet the challenges in order to contribute to effective energy management and energy efficiency.

On successful completion of the course students will be able to:

  • develop and evaluate energy management programmes for businesses and organizations;
  • be aware of the inputs/outputs of an energy conversion system;
  • understand the importance of implementing energy management systems;
  • adopt a positive attitude to the use of renewable energy sources;
  • conduct research, analysis and synthesis of data and information, using the appropriate technological tools;
  • adapt to new situations;
  • carry out independent work; and
  • have respect for the natural environment.
