There are many different ways that you can go about solving engineering problems. One of the most important methods is energy analysis. Energy is a physical property that allows work of any kind to be done; without it, there would be no motion, no heat, and no life. You wouldn’t be able to get out of bed in the morning, but it wouldn’t matter, because there would be no sun. Without energy, our world would not exist as it does.

Keeping the lights on, gasoline in our cars, and our homes comfortable, requires energy resources. These include coal, methane, petroleum, uranium, biomass, water, wind, geothermal, and sunlight. Knowing how we measure, acquire, and use these resources is critical information because human population and income aspirations are increasing, while access to the means of prosperity—energy dense and affordable resources—is at best uneven.
