Skills to be acquired in this module

In the module Renewable Energy Project students merge the acquired scientific knowledge on different RE technologies and the concepts and methodologies they have gained in the different related disciplines and they transfer their competences to solve a real life project.

After successful completion of the module students should be able to:

-        appraise the challenge of a given energy service supply problem

-        assess given data of the situation of the energy service supply problem

-        discriminate between valuable and less valuable input data, necessary and unnecessary data

-        judge and then decide on methodologies to apply to generate a solution

-        develop and then recommend a technical, economic and social solution for an energy service supply system
-        explain, justify and defend the developed solution

Module contents

This module trains students to apply the knowledge acquired in previous lectures to a real life problem.

Case Study (Seminar ‑ 180 h workload)

Students need to

-        Evaluate the state of the art at the Case Study’s project site

-        Describe the energy services demanded

-        Determine the energy demand to supply these services in hourly and seasonal course of time

-        Design the energy supply system based on different technologies for this energy demand

-        Technically & economically optimise generator size, storage size, dumped energy and unmet energy

-        Write a final report for the stakeholder involved

-        Present the findings to the stakeholders involved

-        Solve challenges of working in an international group in order to generate a solution (project management, conflict management, intercultural communication)

Excursion (Excursion ‑ 90 h workload)

The excursion refers to the case study project. Within the excursion, students collect necessary information for the completion of the Case Study itself.

Students prepare, manage and document the excursion by

-        Setting up a list of institutions to be visited

-        Plan the excursion route and excursion schedule

-        Negotiate the necessary appointments

-        Perform the excursion

-        Prepare all participants for the appointments with the institutions

-        Conduct the appointments

-        Document the appointments
-        Draw necessary conclusions for the Case Study from the excursion
