Classes. Unless otherwise indicated, classes will be held twice a week. During Tuesday classes, the topics will be introduced and discussed. Most Wednesday classes will be devoted to a discussion on an energy topic found in one or more assigned journal articles.
Weekly reviews. The weekly review consists of two parts. First, one member of the class will be expected to cover the review in greater detail using other sources, lead a discussion on the topic, present the findings, and submit a review (typically three to five pages). The other members of the class will be expected to participate in the discussion and submit a brief summary (typically one or two pages).
Assignments. Three assignments covering different aspects of energy systems will be made available during the term.
Term project. A project employing the analysis techniques covered in class will be applied to a jurisdiction (one per student). Details of the project will be announced in the first week of term.
