The second half of the course is focused on an individual project to prepare a detailed “business case” report for a hypothetical energy management initiative and orally present it to an investment panel. The initiative can reflect the student’s individual interests and can be located anywhere in the world. It is suggested that initiatives focus on energy management for business, likely a demand-side management initiative to lower energy bills.
