Module:

Programme:

Energy

ECTS:

6

Type:

Master

Module name:

Energy management with renewable energy


Scope and form:

Compulsory; face to face


Duration (weeks; Hours/week):

15 weeks, 2h lectures/week and 2 h sem/week

Type of assessment:

Continuous assessment and two tests (intermediate and final)

Qualified Prerequisites:

Energy management (RE3B)


General module objectives:

The module considers basic and specific issues about economics and management of the new energy technologies using renewable energy sources (RES) and the Renewable Energy Parks (REP) built on this base.


Topics and short description:

Development and perspectives of renewable energy technologies. Energy balance of installations, energy parks and systems with RES. Energy-economic problems. Basic and working funds of REF. Costs and tariffs of the energy, produced by RES. Economic efficiency of the investments in REP. Organization and management of the enterprises with REP. Organization and planning of work and wages in REP. Stimulation and analysis of the REP activity. Explain how “cross-pollinating” perspectives and theories from the social and engineering sciences can enhance our understanding of barriers, energy audits, energy management, policies, and programmes as they pertain to improved energy efficiency in industry.
