Department: BSc Electro-Mechanical Engineering
Module Description: This module is designed to highlight the different ways energy is used in a range of applications. The student will learn how to be able to audit a site and assess the energy consumption of the systems. The audit will enable the proposition of one or more energy saving strategies. Each strategy is to be assessed based on its technical, practical and economical features to determine the energy saving potential and associated financial costs and savings.
