Energy Engineering

Energy engineering or energy systems engineering as a field deals with energy efficiency, energy services, facility management, plant engineering, environmental compliance, sustainable energy and renewable energy technologies. Energy engineering is one of the newer branches of engineering, and combines knowledge from the fields of physics, math, and chemistry with economic and environmental engineering practices.

Energy engineers apply their skills to increase efficiency and further develop renewable sources of energy. Although an energy engineer is concerned with obtaining and using energy in the most environmentally friendly ways, their field is not limited to strictly renewable energy like hydro, solar, hydrogen, biomass, or geothermal, as they are also employed by the fields of oil and natural gas extraction. In addition to hands-on work maintaining and developing technology within the renewable energy sector, energy engineers also work to find the most efficient and sustainable ways to operate buildings and manufacturing processes by auditing the use of energy in those processes and suggesting ways to improve the systems.


Topics of Study within Energy Engineering
  • Energy Sources (such as Renewable and Fossil Fuel)
  • Production of Energy (such as drilling and electrolysis)
  • Conversion of Energy (fission, fusion, gasification, solar pv, waste to energy, etc.)
  • Form of Energy (such as biofuels and refined products)
  • Distribution of Energy (smart/electrical grid, transport fuels, energy storage, etc.)
