Energy engineering

Energy technology concerns supply, storage, transformation, transport and use of energy, often related to resource efficiency, operational availability and environmental impact. It is a multidisciplinary field that includes, e.g. physics, chemistry, biology, electronics, environmental engineering and systems analysis. It is strongly linked to many of our global society’s greatest challenges, particularly as regards development and the transition towards renewable, and sustainable energy systems.
