Energy Systems of the Future (P1)


Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

Learning objectives


  • Be able to define and understand the energy engineering terms used in the project work and have a fundamental comprehension for the applied methods, theories and/or models in energy engineering
  • Comprehend the design of energy systems and their models
  • Have knowledge about the academic profile of energy engineering at which the study aims


  • Be able to define the energy engineering and contextual terms used in a project report
  • Be able to write a problem analysis and a problem formulation
  • Be able to describe the applied energy theories and methods to analyse the chosen problem in relevant contexts
  • Be able to create non-complicated models for the whole, or parts of, the selected energy system


  • Be able to communicate the results achieved during the project work in a project report
  • Be able to plan and reflect on own experience with project work and problem-solving by applying relevant analysis methods
  • Be able to judge the project problem compared to sustainable development of energy systems
  • Be able to apply methods/theories during the project work in order to analyse an energy engineering problem

Type of instruction

Project work including supervision, possibly supported by lectures, workshops, seminars, laboratory experiments, etc. The project work is documented in a P1 project report. The students must participate in the P1 status seminar, elaborate a P1 process analysis and participate in the presentation seminar prior to the examination.

Extent and expected workload

Since it is a 10 ECTS project module, the work load is expected to be 300 hours for the student.
