Energy collection, conversion, transport, storage, distribution, and end-use application are all steps in providing energy services to society. All these elements form an energy system, which is complex and interacts with other systems in a multitude of ways. Transitions in energy systems and the merits of innovation for the individual components of each can only be analysed in the context of the complete system. This is why we place energy systems analysis at the very center of our Energy Science programme.
Analyzing energy systems requires a thorough knowledge of the fundamental scientific and technological principles of the discipline. This knowledge enables us to understand how the characteristics of individual technologies can influence their performance, as well as the impact of market and policy contexts on energy systems. Both economics and policy studies are covered in the programme.
