Carbon and Energy Management (Undergraduate)

This course studies contemporary carbon and energy management issues and practices in both global and regional contexts. Students will develop skills in a series of important carbon and energy management tools. Students will participate in a range of practical learning exercises including, developing a carbon footprint, conducting an energy audit, appraising emissions abatement activities, designing carbon offset projects, and participating in an emissions trading simulation game. The course teaches students how to manage the risks and take advantage of the opportunities arising from various international and Australian climate change mitigation and energy industry legislation (including the Australian National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting Act; Clean Energy Act (Carbon Pricing Mechanism), Direct Action Plan, Carbon Credits Act (Carbon Farming Initiative) and Energy Efficiency Opportunities Act).
