## ENERGY 30N: Busting Energy Myths

Energy myths and misconceptions to better equip participants to understand a pathway for global energy transformation. Key concepts developed and employed include energy [kinetic, potential, chemical, thermal, etc.], power, heat, renewables, efficiency, transmission, and life cycle analysis. Throughout this seminar groups of students are challenged with "energy myths" and their task is to deconstruct these myths and convince their classmates in oral presentations that they have indeed done so. Emphasis is on critical and analytical thinking, problem solving and presentation.

## ENERGY 108: Explore Energy (CEE 108, CEE 208, ENERGY 208)

The Explore Energy seminar series is a weekly residential education experience open to all Stanford students and hosted by the Explore Energy House. Course content features current topics that affect the pace of energy transitions at multiple scales and in multiple sectors. Consistent with Stanford's interest in fostering community and inclusion, this course will facilitate cross-house exchanges with residents in Stanford's academic theme houses that have intersections with energy, catalyzing new connections with common interests. Each quarter will include some sessions that feature Stanford itself as a living laboratory for energy transitions that can be catalyzed by technology, policy, and social systems. Stanford alumni with a range of disciplinary backgrounds will be among the presenters each quarter, supporting exploration of both educational and career development paths. Optional daytime field trips complement this evening seminar series.

## ENERGY 160: Uncertainty Quantification in Data-Centric Simulations (ENERGY 260)

This course provides a brief survey of mathematical methods for uncertainty quantification. It highlights various issues, techniques and practical tools available for modeling uncertainty in quantitative models of complex dynamic systems. Specific topics include basic concepts in probability and statistics, spatial statistics (geostatistics and machine learning), Monte Carlo simulations, global and local sensitivity analyses, surrogate models, and computational alternatives to Monte Carlo simulations (e.g., quasi-MC, moment equations, the method of distributions, polynomial chaos expansions). Prerequisites: algebra (
CME 104 or equivalent), introductory statistics course (
CME 106 or equivalent).

## ENERGY 177A: Engineering and Sustainable Development: Toolkit (ENERGY 277A)

The first of a two-quarter, project-based course sequence that address cultural, sociopolitical, organizational, technical, and ethical issues at the heart of implementing sustainable engineering projects in a developing world. Students work in interdisciplinary project teams to tackle real-world design challenges in partnership with social entrepreneurs, local communities, and/or NGOs. While students must have the skills and aptitude necessary to make meaningful contributions to technical product designs, the course is open to all backgrounds and majors. The first quarter focuses on cultural awareness, ethical implications, user requirements, conceptual design, feasibility analysis, and implementation planning. Admission is by application. Students should plan to enroll in
ENERGY 177B/277B Engineering & Sustainable Development: Implementation following successful completion of this course. Designated a Cardinal Course by the Haas Center for Public Service. To satisfy a Ways requirement, students must register for an undergraduate course number (
