Energy and Environment
Energy and environment research projects convert primary energy such as coal, oil and natural gas into secondary energy production and utilization processes such as electricity and heat; research on scientific and technological issues in artificial environment, air conditioning and refrigeration, and wind, solar and biomass energy. And other new energy development and utilization. This major combines high-tech science and technology such as heat, mechanics, materials, machinery manufacturing, environmental science, computer and automatic control. It is a multi-disciplinary combination of energy, environment and control.
In order to adapt to the development requirements of the national energy strategy, the students are closely related to the energy environment. Students mainly study the basic theories of energy and environmental systems engineering.
The relationship between energy and environment
With the continuous development of energy and the increasing awareness of environmental protection, the relationship between energy and the environment has attracted more and more attention.
The intrinsic link between the rational use of resources and the protection of the environment lies in the interdependence of resources and the environment. Resources refer to the general term for various material elements such as material, financial, and human resources in a country or a certain region. Divided into two major categories of natural resources and social resources. The former includes sunlight, air, water, land, forests, grasslands, animals, minerals, etc.; the latter includes human resources, information resources, and various material wealth created by labor. Energy is the main support for determining human progress and a strategic input factor for economic growth. There is a certain interaction between economic growth and energy input. Energy is the source of economic growth, and economic growth drives energy consumption. Therefore, the positive impact of energy on the economy and society is still very obvious. However, the use of energy has also caused an increasingly serious impact on the environment. When people consider factors such as energy efficiency and calorific value, they also have to consider the impact on the environment. Energy is the material basis for the existence and development of human society. The progress of civilization in human society has always relied on the support of the material foundation of energy. It changes our lives all the time. People's lives are inseparable from energy. However, at the same time of development, people are increasingly feeling the serious consequences of the large-scale use of fossil fuels: resources are increasingly exhausted, the environment is deteriorating, and political and economic disputes between many countries and regions have been induced. It is conflict and war. For the permanent harmony of human society, we must find a new, clean, safe and reliable sustainable energy system. The energy and environment profession is to train talents who can develop new energy and balance the environment and energy.
