Prerequisites: Pre-requirements for the course are the basic concepts of differential calculus and thermodynamics acquired from the student in the courses of the BSc.
Target skills and knowledge: The Renewable Energy Techniques course for environmental engineering arises from the need to investigate topics concerning energy and environmental problems and aims to provide (in addition to the basic concepts of Applied Thermodynamics already given in previous courses) the analysis and design tools to move in the field of renewable energy in great expansion and constant updating.
Examination methods: To be defined.
Course unit contents: Thermodynamics and energy recall.
Analysis of possible heat/work conversions.
Energy consumption analysis on a global and national basis.
Historical evolution of energy consumption and production.
Analysis of the main renewable energy resources.
Solar thermal energy.
Photovoltaic solar energy.
Wind energy.
Other sources (biomass, tides, geothermal, etc.).
Energy storage (fuel cells, etc.)
Environmental impact and costs of energy sources.
Global warming, ozone layer depletion.
