Japan-Canada Student Training Workshop on Low Carbon Urban Energy System
August 19 to 24, 2019
A five-day training workshop was hosted by the “Energy and Environmental Systems (EES) laboratory” located at IGSES, Chikushi Campus. The workshop was attended by a group of students from the “Centennial College, SaGE, Toronto, Canada”. The workshop was built around a number of lectures from the expert speakers: Dr. Eric Zusman, IGES, Dr. Hadi Farabi-Asl, I2CNER and Prof. Stephen Lyth, Q-pit. Professor Farzaneh and his students presented their research projects and discussed the key policies and instruments which can be developed in order to establish a low carbon urban energy system. A hands-on exercise session was also provided in this workshop in order to provide training for two newly developed tools at EES: ” Co-benefits assessment in the Transport sector” and ” Urban Sustainable Development Index (USDI)”. Through combination of lectures and hands-on exercises, the participants tried to practice key policies and scenarios and extremely learned how to develop their own strategic plans. Our friendly and constructive workshop ended with a cool cultural tour in Dazaifu Tenmangu shrine on the last day.
