The purpose of this course is teaching students the ideas and the techniques behind energy management, especially from the consumer’s view.
The basic parameters of this course are, on the one hand, the energy management as a separate cost for a business and on the other hand the environmental policy that is included in the Kyoto protocol and the estimation of the environmental impact.
With the term energy management, we mean the process whose initial step is energy consumption recording and the relationships between energy consumption and production.
The next step is to evaluate the energy cost and track the points that lead to energy efficiency. Economic benefits and energy saving are the ultimate goals of the above procedure.
