Energy Planning and Management

Compulsary For MSc YES

Due to population growth and economic development, an integrated approach to energy planning and management is required to consider both the provision of energy supplies and the role of energy efficiency in reducing demands. This course introduces candidates to fundamentals of energy planning and energy management, looking into issues of growing electricity demands, short-term and long-term energy forecasts, the possible technology and resource options for electricity supply, various technical and policy constraints, energy efficiency and demand-side management techniques. It further highlights the potential benefits / contribution of energy planning, energy management and energy efficiency to the energy sector and explains why they should be promoted


  1. Model energy or electricity demand / consumption patterns and project them into the future (short and long term forecasting)
  2. Assess and make socio-economic comparisons of different supply options using different energy conversion technologies for meeting the projected demand
  3. Undertake energy audits at domestic, company or industrial levels and be able to identify and evaluate energy management opportunities (savings)
  4. Implement a complete range of demand-side management techniques including load-shape objectives, conservation and load management, power factor correction, etc.
  5. Promote utilization of energy in a cost-effective way by championing various energy efficiency methods
