The Smart Energy and the Built Environment program at University College London (UCL) is developed to provide knowledge on the value of smart energy in the built environment and the wider system. It is also designed to provide the skills to take on the challenges we face. The programme brings together both physical and social perspectives of energy demand and supply. This will help you understand how the sociotechnical system of local energy can be designed and commissioned to deliver effective policies and economic priorities. You will learn how key components of a smart energy system work, integrate and interact with energy policy and business opportunities, including building energy efficiency, renewable energy, decentralisation, the Internet of Things (IoT), storage and energy market design.
There has been significant global investment into smart energy systems, low carbon technologies, novel strategies to manage energy demand, and the integration generation and storage into the fabric of the built environment. These are supported by rapid advancements in digital technologies that are set to making systems more connected, intelligent and reliable. To design and commission these systems highly skilled specialists are required, with a deep understanding of the nature of energy demand in the built environment.
