- technologies
* Biomass power plants
- Combustion
- Gasification

Lernergebnisse

At the end of the module students should be able to differentiate between fossile and renewable energy carriers, evaluate the potential of generating power in large quantities in future energy supply scenarios and the technological, political and social boundary conditions. A profound knowledge of renewable energy technologies (hydro, wind, solar, biomass and geothermal) should enable students to assess pro's and con's of fossile vs. renewable energies in order to be able to decide on the best suited technology in a certain scenario.

Voraussetzungen

Basic knowledge of compontents for power generation (generators, turbines, boilers, etc.)
