A cross-disciplinary course that provides the fundamentals for assessment of operational energy efficiency in a range of systems. The course allows students to develop skills in designing energy efficient systems in the residential, commercial, and industrial sectors. The emphasis in this course is on whole of system design to minimise energy usage of, for example, water heating, refrigeration, lighting, HVAC, electric motors systems, pumps and fans, compressed air, furnaces and process steam. Transport and water efficiency as well as energy efficiency standards and policy are also examined.
