COURSE DESCRIPTION
Course Level Bachelor's Degree
Course Type Elective
Course Objective This course has been designed to give sufficient information about conventional and alternative energy sources including renewables after a brief review of basic issues of energy policies such as history of energy, energy economics, energy shift, energy geopolitics, energy and global climate change and energy security.
Course Content The major topics of first part of this course include energy overview, history and energy substitution, important energy eras, energy and hegemonic powers, geopolitics of energy resources and energy security, Hubbert’s curve and peak oil theory, primary energy sources, energy conversion and secondary energy, energy as an economic sector, sectoral energy enduse, sustainable energy development, energy and environment. The second part, on the other hand, covers the topics on fossil fuels such as coal, oil and natural gas as well as renewable energy sources such as wind, solar, geothermal, hydro, biomass and hydrogen.The students of Energy Management and Policy Certificate Program are expected to be exposed to all of the energy options that may be encountered in the 21st century. Therefore, this course is designed to give students detailed information about the conventional and alternative energy sources after a brief review of energy and power.

COURSE LEARNING OUTCOMES
1•Opine on the core issues of energy science.
2•Analyze the historical dynamics of global energy system, the mechanism of substitution among energy resources and the future energy systems.
3•Interpret the present dynamics of international relations by examining the relationship between the energy policies of countries and global struggle over resources.
4•Analyze the effects of energy on global events such as environmental degradation and climate change.
5•Opine on the sustainable energy development and related policies.
6•Explain the roles of energy security which is the core determinant of countries energy policies, and the supply, demand and transit security of energy in countries policies.
7•Analyze the process of exploration, production, transportation, and end use of fossil fuels such as coal, oil, and natural gas.
8•Analyze the impacts of countries’ renewable energy policies and the vital role of renewable energies on sustainable energy development.
