Carbon neutrality is a World issue as the rise of sea level and major climate changes may have dramatic human, social and economic consequences, globally. In face of such challenges, efforts are deployed to mitigate the man-made carbon emission into atmosphere that slightly modifies the radiation balance and the greenhouse gas effect, but enough to raise temperature by a few degrees. Ideally, one would like to ensure carbon neutrality, that is reabsorb or capture as much carbon as what has been released through energy production from fossil fuels. This course aims to discuss thoroughly these issues.
The course is part of:
- Graduate Certificate in Sustainability — Strategy, Energy, Environment, and Circularity
Date(s): 08 to 11 May 2023
Time: 8 to 11 May 2023, 9am-5.30pm
Registration Closing Date: 24 Apr 2023
At the end of the course, learners will be able to:
- quantify the various carbon reservoirs relevant to global warming issues;
- quantify how fossil energy production affects the carbon fluxes;
- explain the basics, the advantages and drawbacks of the main sources of renewable energy, and assess their potential development given technological challenges and future supply;
- explain the basics, the advantages and drawbacks of nuclear energy, fission and fusion, and assess their potential development given technological challenges, future supply, safety issues, as well as political and public opinion challenges;
- explain the current and future solutions for energy storage;
- assess the green solutions for transportation: air, sea, road;
- explain the current and future solutions for carbon capture, use and storage;
- assess the best energy mix within a regional context.
