Energy Services (IST)
This course introduces the concept of energy services and presents the modeling principles to design sustainable energy systems. The course will occur through a self-paced methodology, which means that will be open for a longer period and all the materials and evaluation are already available. Since there are not delivery limits, each participant can finish the course when most opportune during a year (15th March 2019 - 15th March 2020).

The main goals of this course are:

• Understand the energy service concept

• Identify the required energy services in different energy systems contexts

• Know the level of energy services around the world

• Model different energy services

• Estimate the energy services requirements




Contents:

• Energy concepts (energy systems, energy definitions, tools to describe energy systems, energy consumption around the world)

• Energy Services (energy services definition, energy services in buildings, energy consumption in buildings)

• Energy services requirements (thermal comfort, hot water, visual comfort)

• Energy services modeling (heating and cooling, hot water, cooking, lighting, others)

The contents will consist of a series of videos for each topic, where each video covers a sub topic. The videos will be complemented by lecture notes, FAQ and discussion forums.

The course will occur through a self-paced methodology, which means that will be open for a longer period and all the materials and evaluation are already available. Since there are not delivery limits, each participant can finish the course when most opportune during a year.


The prerequisites for this course are:

- Understand the energy, work and heat concepts

- Know the first and second laws of thermodynamics

- Know the heat transfer mechanisms


Assessment

The course is divided in 4 topics. For each subtopic, there will a quiz that needs to be answered to allow the progress to the next subtopic. To move forward to the next topic, the quiz needs to be positively answered.The weight on the final grade of all the quizzes (homework) completed is 10%.

For each topic, there will be a mid-term evaluation that needs to be positively assessed to allow the progress for the next topic. This exercise is individually and once completed the 4 mid-term evaluations it will count 50% for your final grade.

After completing all the topics, there will be an overall exercise which weight on the final grade is 40%.
