This course starts off with introducing the climate system components and energy and matter flow through the system, greenhouse effect, and radiative forcing. The most recent scientific evidence on the changing climate as well as the adaptation and mitigation strategies are discussed. Linking energy sector as the single largest anthropogenic source of climate‐changing greenhouse‐gas emissions to energy services, energy efficiency as well as the energy supply and demand side management form the bulk of the course. Students are further engaged in exploring GHG inventories, protocols, strategies and action plans for GHG reductions, offset credits/trading systems and GHG validation/verification principals.
