RISULTATI DI APPRENDIMENTO ATTESI LEARNING OUTCOMES
Conoscenze e comprensione.

-


Capacità di applicare conoscenze e comprensione.

-


Competenze trasversali.

-


Knowledge and Understanding.

At engineering level, the students will be given information to supervise both the planning design and implementation of new renewable-energy power plants and the design and implementation of retrofitting of existing plants. At stakeholders’ level, the students will be given information to make proper and optimal planning of energy management.


Capacity to apply Knowledge and Understanding.

Part of the course will focus on case studies so to let students identify practical issues and end-user topics. At the end of the course, the students shall be able to: determine and choose types of primary energy sources; determine and choose conversion, management, storage, and dispatching facilities; supervise a design of facilities (location, positioning, implementation mode, etc.); evaluate and quantify the possible environmental impacts of plants; plan design and implement environmental monitoring systems.


Transversal Skills.

Given the related issues, almost all the course will deliver knowledge apt to develop crosswise skills
