Paper Description

Edit Paper Description Content
The paper will examine energy systems using both energy engineering analysis including systems analysis. Issues regarding the Energy Trilemma and the Energy Transition will be explored in the context of electrical, transportation, and industrial energy systems. Particular emphasis will be given to renewable energy, environmental impact and the wider integration of energy systems with each other. The potential for widespread electrification of energy demands will be a focus.
