The development of sustainable and renewable methods for power generation is a global priority, motivated by the impacts of fossil fuel use on the environment, as well as dwindling reserves of most fossil fuels. The main challenges in the shift away from fossil-fuel based power generation lie in the development of sustainable energy technologies, from the engineering of new materials to the integration of these technologies into power distribution networks.
In this course students will gain in-depth and advanced knowledge of a diverse range of sustainable energy technologies, including wind, tidal, solar, fuel cells and biomass. The content ranges from fundamental principles to the latest developments in these technologies. The students will be introduced to key enabling technologies, including those for energy storage (electrical, electrochemical, mechanical and thermal) and power distribution.
Students will also attend seminars on project planning/management, ethics, health & safety, report writing, library skills and career management, to help prepare them for the demands of the course and for future study or employment.
This course is aimed at graduate engineers who wish to pursue a career in the energy technologies industry or those wishing to pursue a career in research through PhD study.
