授業の概要・目的 Energy and materials are vitally linked, in their production and utilisation, and are crucial for society. All energy and materials are ultimately reliant on various resources, principal among which are the non-renewable mineral resources. This course will examine the bi-directional link of materials and energy, and the resources on which they are dependent - particularly critical minerals.
到達目標 Students will obtain an understanding of various materials and the energy use in their production, as well as the use of various materials in energy systems. The concepts of material criticality will be introduced, and the students will obtain an understanding of the key elements of criticality assessment and its strategic importance.
授業計画と内容 The general course topics will be as follows:
1. Overview of materials, energy and resources
2. Typical materials and energy lifecycles (1-2weeks)
3. Resource types and models (1-2weeks)
4. Material criticality 1 - Vulnerability to Supply Restriction (2 weeks)
5. Material criticality 2 - Supply Risk (2 weeks)
6. Material criticality 3 - Environmental Impacts
7. Recycling and renewability
8. Substitutes and substitutability
9. Energy scenarios and materials (2 weeks)
10. Resource curse and social implications of energy

The exact order of topics may change. Some additional topics - particularly classes with a focus on a particular material - may be added.

The final class will have student presentations.
成績評価の方法・観点 Evaluation in the subject will be based on:
Class performance: attendance and short exercises (30%)
Final week presentation (20%)
Final report (50%)
履修要件 特になし
授業外学習(予習・復習)等 Some short exercises will be provided for students to undertake out of class.
Pre-reading may be provided.
