40076-01 - Vorlesung mit Übungen: Technical Basis of Generation, Distribution and Storage of Energy 3 KP

Semester Frühjahrsemester 2023
Angebotsmuster Jedes Frühjahrsem.
Dozierende Rebecca Lordan-Perret (rebecca.lordan-perret@unibas.ch, BeurteilerIn)
Inhalt In this course, we discuss the technical/scientific basis of energy generation, distribution, and storage. We begin with developing an understanding of what energy is, its forms, and where we find sources of energy here on earth. Next, we will describe in detail how we generate energy from those sources, with an emphasis on the physical and chemical conversions that must take place and how energy generation technologies work. We will consider a range of generation technologies from traditional centralized power plants to distributed energy sources. In each case, we will take a life-cycle perspective to evaluate the necessary inputs, production, availability, transportation and distribution, and waste streams of each technology. We will end by considering future energy demand scenarios, including changes in demand driven by new technologies (e.g., electric mobility, smart grids, energy storage), and how we can meet rising global energy demand and address the pressing environmental issue of our time, climate change.
Lernziele After taking this course, students
- understand the technical/scientific basics of current energy generating and storing technologies;
- understand the technical/scientific basis of how we move energy from where it is produced to where it is consumed;
- understand the life-cycle perspective of each energy technology;
- can evaluate diverse options for meeting future demand and addressing climate change.

Bemerkungen Mandatory for MSD students with focus area in social sciences and in economics. Unless you have a background in natural sciences and have already attended a similar course; you would have to substitute it by agreement with Prof. Dr. Patricia Holm (learning agreement).

For students with focus area in natural sciences the lecture is optional (and can be attended if you have not attended a similar course already), credit points are to be transferred to the "Focal Areas in Sustainability Research" module (learning agreement).

This lecture is offered by MSD. Dr. Rebecca Lordan-Perret holds a teaching assignment.
