The focus of this module is on understanding electrification technology and their practical application in multiple industries.
Participants will understand the opportunities and challenges of the electrification of different sectors (e.g. transportation, buildings, industry).
This course takes a case study approach to look at how electrification is currently impacting products and technology use in manufacturing, electronics, automotive/ transport, building construction and facilities management. Some policy and regulatory elements may be discussed to provide context, but the focus is on understanding the technical and practical aspects of implementation. The technical results that can be expected will be discussed in terms of power availability and security, energy efficiency, etc. as well as how electrification supports other potential technical goals such as digitalization and automation.
