Overview

This course addresses the important issues of sustainable energy access and development. The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, in particular the energy objectives, are considered. The course investigates the connections between food, energy and water and explores global change issues such as population, consumption, international trade, environmental degradation, resource depletion and conflict. Stakeholder identifiaction, prioritisation and management are also presented,

This course is part of the Sustainable Energy MicroMasters series. You may take the course as a single course or complete all four courses in the series.

There are two enrolment options: verified enrolment and audit enrolment.  If you enrol as a verified learner and successfully complete all four courses and the Capstone Assessment you will qualify for the Sustainable Energy MicroMasters credential.

A Sustainable Energy MicroMasters credential is worthwhile in itself, but, if you wish to continue your studies, the Sustainable Energy MicroMasters credential could be used towards studying the Master of Sustainable Energy at The University of Queensland in Brisbane, Australia.

Learners who choose to enrol as verified, will be required to write an assignment, and achieve an overall passing grade of 70% or above in order to receive the downloadable verified certificate.

This course runs multiple times throughout the year.
