Cursusdoelen
At the end of this course, students are able to:
Perform basic energy unit conversion in order to compare the energy-related performances of different energy technologies.
Articulate the working mechanisms, recent developments, and pros and cons of the main sustainable energy technologies.
Provide simple life-cycle environmental and economic assessments of an energy technology.
Critically interpret and adopt scientific findings and practices regarding the future of sustainable energy technologies.
 
Inhoud
This is a part of Module 6, Sustainable Civil Engineering of the Bachelor Civil Engineering. See here for the complete description of this module.

Energy use in the built environment course provides an overview of the main sustainable energy technologies, including low-carbon energy sources (e.g. solar, wind, geothermal, and natural gas instead of coal or oil) and energy efficiency practices (e.g. combined heat and power, electrical vehicles). For each technology, the working mechanism, energy efficiency and generating capacity, economics and environmental implications, as well as the evolution and future trend of the technology will be discussed through lectures. We also take a closer look at how energy use and emissions are calculated, as well as the local energy transition process in different areas in the world.
