|Semester||spring semester 2019|
|Course frequency||Every spring sem.|
|Lecturers||Wolfgang Hoffelner (email@example.com, Assessor)|
|Content||Current discussions concerning scenarii for production and use of energy as well as the development of future energy strategies require knowledge about the basis of the different energy systems. During the lecture the students will get a deeper understanding of technical, physical and chemical backgrounds behind various kinds of energy as well its production technologies. The variety of future machines, plants and options for communication require also knowledge about energy storage and energy distribution. Recovery of energy, which is based on the conversion of energy, is a basic element in energy saving and needs understanding of physical-chemical processes. The lecture shall enable students to objective and critical discussions concerning the complex concepts of future energy matters. In addition to the local Swiss requirements also the global dimension of energy will be considered.
Possible discussion points are:
- Basis of Energy Systems
- Traditional Energy Production
- Renewable Energies
- Energy Storage and Recovery
- Smart Grids
- Mobility, etc.
- know the technical/scientific background behind the various methods and plants for energy production;
- know the technical/scientific background of future energy systems (production, distribution, storage, recovery);
- are able to judge about advantages and limitations of future energy concepts;
- are able to judge about future national and international energy concepts and scenarii.
|Bibliography||Literature will be given throughout the semester.|
Mandatory for students who have chosen the focus area in Social Sciences or in Economics.
For students with focus area in Natural Sciences the credit points may be transferred to the "Focal Areas in Sustainability Research" module (Learning Agreement).
