STIA 222 - Methods in Energy Analysis
Designing effective energy policy requires a sound understanding of the science that supports our current and future energy technology. This course will arm students with a basic background in scientific principals necessary to craft achievable energy policy targets. We will explore fundamental concepts of how energy is generated, converted, and stored. Students will then apply these concepts to assess the current challenges faced by the energy sector to provide usable on demand energy while minimizing impact on the local and global environment. The course will guide students through fundamental concepts in chemistry and physics through a series of lectures, hands on activities, and review of current technology and policy applications. Assignments will include in class activities, problems sets, and written exams.

Learning Goals
By the end of this course, engaged students who come to class regularly, participate actively in discussions, and complete all readings and assignments will be able to:
•Comprehend the basic physical principals that govern conversion of energy to produce power for use in distributed power generation and transportation
•Understand how fuel combustion creates useful energy and pollution byproducts
•Explain the function of pollution control technologies in power production and transportation engines
•Describe how secondary pollutants such ozone and acid rain form in the atmosphere
•Debate the feasibility and impact of proposed regulatory pollutant targets and caps
•Develop critical reading and writing skills
•Develop excellent research skills
•Collaborate with others and work as a team player
•Understand how science plays a critical role in developing effective public
