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

·         distinguish between valuable / trustworthy and less valuable / less trustworthy input data,  
          necessary and unnecessary data

·         judge and then decide on methodologies to apply in order to generate an answer to a
         research question related to an energy supply system

·         develop and then recommend a technical, economic and social solution for an energy
          service supply system

·         explain, justify and defend the developed solution


On a second level students train

·         working in an international team

·         managing an international team

·         collaborating with an international manager

·         managing their project (project management)

·         conflict management

-        documentation of their time spent on the project, thereby getting an insight into different
         steps of a project and its expenditure on time.



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 transfer their competences to solve a real-life project. Thereby, this module trains students to apply the knowledge acquired in previous lectures to a real-life problem. The module consists of two parts, the Case Study Seminar (6CP) and the Excursion (3CP).


Case Study Seminar (180 h workload)

Students need to:

·         Determine a real-life case of their interest

·         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

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

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

·         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 (90 h workload)

The excursion refers to the lectures within SuRE and complements them in terms of applying the lecture content or presenting additional, non-lectured RE technologies of interest.


Students fully self-manage the excursion whereby the lecturer consults and

supports the organisation when necessary.

For the institutions to be visited:

-       Determination of a list of institutions to be visited

-       Establishment of contact with those institutions

-       Management of the appointments with those institutions

-       Reporting on the excursion appointment and summarizing of lessons learned

-       Post Excursion communication with the institutions visited


For the organisation of the excursion students:

-       plan the excursion route and excursion schedule

-       manage appropriate accommodation

-       negotiate and commission the bus company

-       establish the economical balance

-       assure safety on the journey


Finally, the excursion is performed while recurring to the points above.

Specifically, the Excursion will contribute to the PPRE students’ bonding amongst one another and with other students at the university of Oldenburg (specifically EP, Phy, SEM).

Furthermore, it enables insights in to institutions dealing with Renewable Energy on multiple levels.
