Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to asses the technological and economic possibilities of the various renewable energy options. They can also quantify the expected energy gains of the diferent systems for given external conditions.

Subject of course

Wind power, photovoltaics, solar thermal, heat pumps, hydro power, tidal and wave energy, geothermal energy, biomass, electrical storage; physical basics, potential, status of actual applications and technological trends

Teaching methods

Lectures based on transparancies, which are sufficiently detailed to serve as actual course material. Calculations of concrete examples are presented on the blackboard. During the photovoltaics chapter outdoor measurements on photovoltaic panels are made.
