Basic Research, Basic Book, Basic Concept
My basic knowledge is computer science, my master is engineering management focusing on renewable energy, my phd is sustainable energy. So what is sustainable energy? sustainable energy is a small chapter in environment science – a book (Cunningham 2010), is a chapter in renewable energy – a book (Boyle, MacKay). I am finished reading this in my master year -which is not master by research but master by taught.
So where and when the research begin? research is an investigation, so it must be something new, that people never did it before. So in my experience, I think it just start now.
My keyword is energy modelling.
