Supplying course 1000263 FONTI ENERGETICHE RINNOVABILI in Ingegneria per l'Ambiente e il Territorio LM-35 PIETRAFESA MATILDE
Professor Matilde Mariarosa Consolata PIETRAFESA
Objectives The course deals with the most widespread technologies of energy production from renewable source through the dissertation of principles, processes, components and systems. The course starts describing the present transitions from fossil fuels to renewable sources and from centralized production to distributed one. Fossil fuels impact on the environment is analysed, together with its consequent climatic changes. Energy storage making use of hydrogen as energy vector is also described.
