EARTHSYS 103: Understanding Energy (CEE 107A, CEE 207A)

Energy is one of the world's main drivers of opportunity and development for human beings. At the same time, our energy system has significant consequences for our society, political system, economy, and environment. For example, energy production and use is the #1 source of greenhouse gas emissions. This course surveys key aspects of each energy resource, including significance and potential conversion processes and technologies, drivers and barriers, policy and regulatory environment, and social, economic, and environmental impacts. Both depletable and renewable energy resources are covered, including oil, natural gas, coal, nuclear, biomass, hydroelectric, wind, solar, photovoltaics, geothermal, and ocean energy, with cross-cutting topics including electricity, storage, climate change, sustainability, green buildings, energy efficiency, transportation, and the developing world. Understanding Energy is part of a trio of inter-related courses aimed at gaining an in-depth understanding of each energy resource - from fossil fuels to renewable energy. The other two classes are CEE107W/207W Understanding Energy - Workshop, and CEE 107F/207F Understanding Energy -- Field Trips. Note that this course was formerly called Energy Resources ( CEE 173A/207A & Earthsys 103). Prerequisites: Algebra. May not be taken for credit by students who have completed CEE 107S.

EARTHSYS 103F: Understanding Energy -- Field Trips (CEE 107F, CEE 207F)

Understanding Energy - Field Trips takes students on trips to major energy resource sites located within a few hours of Stanford University. Students visit at least two of the many field trips offered, including to a nuclear power plant, a wind farm, a geothermal facility, a solar photovoltaic (PV) farm, a hydroelectric power plant, an oil field, and a natural gas-fired power plant, among others (field trips offered may vary by quarter). Students meet 7-8 times during the quarter to debrief previous field trips and prepare for future ones. Open to all majors and backgrounds. Understanding Energy - Field Trips is part of a trio of inter-related courses aimed at gaining an in-depth understanding of each energy resource -- from fossil fuels to renewable energy. The other two courses are  CEE 107A/207A & EARTHSYS 103 Understanding Energy, and  CEE 107W/207W & EARTHSYS 103W Understanding Energy - Workshop. Priority is given to students who have taken or are concurrently enrolled in  CEE 173ACEE 107ACEE 207AEARTHSYS 103, or  CEE 107S/207S.

EARTHSYS 103W: Understanding Energy -- Workshop (CEE 107W, CEE 207W)

Interactive workshop that goes in depth into cross-cutting energy topics touched on by  CEE 107A/207A &  EARTHSYS 103 - Understanding Energy. Topics covered include energy and sustainability, energy information analysis, energy and climate change policy, electricity storage, exergy and energy quality, energy-water nexus, energy and land use, energy and air quality, and transportation policy. Students are graded on attendance, participation, and a short final paper. Sessions will involve discussions, group activities, and fun debates. Open to all majors and backgrounds. This workshop is part of a trio of inter-related courses aimed at gaining an in-depth understanding of each energy resource -- from fossil fuels to renewable energy. The other two classes are  CEE 107A/207A & EARTHSYS 103 Understanding Energy, and  CEE 107F/207F & EARTHSYS 103F Understanding Energy Field Trips. Prerequisites: Must have taken or take concurrently  CEE 173ACEE 107ACEE 207A, EARTHSYS 103, or  CEE 107S/207S.
