中文简介 中国作为世界第二大经济体,是全球煤消耗量最大、石油消耗量第二的国家,二氧化碳的排放量也最多,经济的发展给环境带来了巨大的压力,环境问题尤其是近年来频繁发生的雾霾引起来高度的公众关注。这门课程拟从交叉学科的角度,展望中国的能源结构,剖析现今突显的与能源相关的环境问题,如空气污染等,阐述这些环境问题可能带来的气候效应和健康效应。

本课程将讨论建国以来重要的能源结构调整,包括燃煤相关的发电、供暖和石油的使用和在交通源的发展及其对空气污染的贡献,全面分析中国可替代清洁能源的种类和利弊,以及环境保护和经济增长之间的制衡关系。力求通过介绍在中国复合污染的背景下能源-污染-气候之间的关联,引导学生科学认识发展中国家快速经济发展过程中可能遇到的环境问题,深入思考可能的解决途径。

本课程将带领学生实地考察,参观空气质量观测站点、以及北京周边的抽水蓄能、风电、太阳能集中发热、光伏发电等新能源设施。
英文简介 The focus of this undergraduate course is energy, the driven force of the development of global economy and our society. China is the world’s second largest economy, the world’s largest consumer of coal, the second largest consumer of oil, and the world’s largest emitter of CO2. Rapid economic development after China’s reform and opening up alters the global energy structure and leads great environmental challenges. The course is structured for a broad exposure to energy fundamentals, covering both the non-renewable (fossil fuel and nuclear) and renewable (solar, wind, hydro-, and bio-) energy technologies, the historical shifts of energy sectors (production, demand, imports, exports, and prices), and the energy-pollution-climate connections. It aims to help students develop a working knowledge about the energy economy and the sound policymaking, to understand the global changes, and to encourage intellective thinking of sustainable development.

This course includes field trips, during which students will have real-world exposure to renewable energy facilities (wind, solar, PV, hydro- etc.) and air-quality monitoring stations in China.
