  • Double-check the date, time and location of your final exam for each class.
  • If you have more than three final exams on the same day, contact your instructor to move one to a different day.
  • If you have academic integrity questions, refer to the Academic Integrity Office website.
  • Prioritize studying for tests that have the most impact on your grades.
  • Review quizzes, exams and homework and rework sample/practice problems.
  • Eat a nourishing meal and get a good night’s sleep before each of your exams.

Disruptive Energy Futures
Wednesday, April 24, 2019
2–3 p.m.

Oil suppliers have more unsellable than unburnable oil; they are more at risk from competition than from climate regulation. Electricity suppliers too face a swarm of disruptors that will transform their business beyond recognition. As these two vast industries merge and as insurgents in both challenge incumbents, almost everything we thought we knew about energy is ripe for rapid and profound change.

Integrative Design for Radical Energy Efficiency
Thursday, April 25, 2019
8:30–9:30 a.m.

Energy efficiency is traditionally viewed as a pile of separate technologies to be added in order of increasing cost. Yet designing buildings, vehicles, and factories instead as whole systems can save several-fold more energy at several-fold lower cost. Examples spanning all sectors and virtually all applications even show that such “integrative design” can often make savings cost less as their quantity grows. Countries still building much of their infrastructure can more easily build it right than fix it later, so integrative design offers an extraordinary opportunity to stretch capital budgets by leveraging enormous supply-side savings.
