Skills to be acquired in this module

After successful completion of the module students should be able to:

·         analyze, and critically understand different definitions of resilience and fundamental
          concepts relevant in the context of energy systems analysis (e.g. complexity, homeostasis,
          equilibria, stressors,…)

·         understand and interlink assessment methods, principles and theories for resilience analysis
         of energy supply systems in different scientific disciplines

·         critically evaluate the suitability, meaningfulness and implications of different resilience-
          related indicators, theories and assessment methods from several disciplines

·         develop a scientific discourse on suitable approaches for assessing particular aspects of a
          resilient energy system design in the context of a particular real-life case study

·         identify main barriers, potentials and driving factors for improving one selected assessment
         approach in the context of its application to a case study

·         perform a literature review, apply a selected resilience and extract the main related
         conclusions, arguing critically on them

·         present scientific results and conclusions both verbally and in written form, including
          quotation to a professional standard
