Certificate Clean Energy Solutions: Technological Change to Meet Emissions Reduction | MIT Professional Education

All the participants who successfully complete their program will receive an MIT Professional Education Certificate of Completion, as well as Continuing Education Units (CEUs)*.

To obtain CEUs, complete the accreditation confirmation, which is available at the end of the course. CEUs are calculated for each course based on the number of learning hours.

*The Continuing Education Unit (CEU) is defined as 10 contact hours of ongoing learning to indicate the amount of time they have devoted to a non-credit/non-degree professional development program.

To understand whether or not these CEUs may be applied toward professional certification, licensing requirements, or other required training or continuing education hours, please consult your training department or licensing authority directly.

Course Outline

Module 1: Introduction to Clean Energy

In the first module, a holistic approach is given, including an introduction to climate change, greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, climate change impacts, and a overview of current climate change mitigation goals and recept progress.

Module 2: Emissions Scenarios and Climate Change

This module focuses of the background of climate change, including anthropogenic emissions sources. Furthermore, we will learn about the Kaya Identity, the IPAT formula, and the global carbon budget.

Module 3: Evaluation of Eneregy Systems

In this module we will evaluate forms of energy and energy technologies, including their metrics and targets. Additionally, we will discuss sectors that are more difficult to decarbonize.

Module 4: Technolgical Changes: Trajectories in Energy

In this module, we will assess technology trends, mechanistic models, and data-informed models of measurement and forecasting.

Module 5: Models to Inform Investments in Clean Energy and Other Climate Solutions

In Module 5, we will dive into models to inform investments in energy technology portfolios, and assess the various components and trends of such portfolios. This will include Modern Portfolio Theory, the elements of an energy technology portfolio, and examples of a portfolio problem. Furthermore, we will address integrated assessment models.

Module 6: Energy and Climate Change Policy

In the last module, participants will learn about energy and climate policy intruments, regulations, subsidies, adnd market-based incentives approaches. Additionally, to concluse, participants will apply all they have learned throughout the course.



Professor, Institute for Data, Systems, and Society, MIT

I'm not in a decision-making role, but I'm delighted to have been exposed to economic methods for judging technology potential in an aimed time frame. I feel optimistic towards the ultimate solution of GHG emission reductions and possibly harmful emissions width carbon sequestration. My optimism is tempered by the work that remains and the low likelihood of 1.5 or 2.0 temperature targets by 2050. I'm preparing a graduate school course on climate change and public health, and I feel more grounded in the decision trade-offs needed for progress. This class helped a lot.
