This capstone course will allow participants to synthesize and apply what they have learned to complex energy management issues and energy solution implementations. Participants will analyze selected case scenarios and possible solutions using the energy management frameworks and models mastered in earlier courses to provide substantiation, precedents, and supporting evidence for proposed recommendations. As this is the capstone course in the Energy Management and Innovation certificate, participants will be required to undertake a final project paper to integrate and apply energy sustainability's social, economic, and/or environmental components to one or more issues, solutions, or innovations. The final paper allows participants to demonstrate a broad mastery of learning across the curriculum and to hone their ability to propose specific strategies and solutions that incorporate best sustainability practices and meet regulatory requirements. The paper may be used by participants for career portfolio purposes.
