Please note! Course description is confirmed for two academic years, which means that in general, e.g. Learning outcomes, assessment methods and key content stays unchanged. However, via course syllabus, it is possible to specify or change the course execution in each realization of the course, such as how the contact sessions are organized, assessment methods weighted or materials used.
At the end of this course the students are able to:
Recognize state-of-the-art materials currently used in renewable energy systems
Identify common degradation mechanisms in these applications
Develop new material solutions and eco-design
Share the expertise of ones field in a heterogeneous team
Justify material selection with scientific argumentation

CONTENT, ASSESSMENT AND WORKLOAD
At this course the students learn how materials behave at circumstances relevant for the renewable energy systems (solar systems, wind turbines, energy storage (fuel cells, batteries)) and how material development is performed for this kind of systems taking into account also the requirements of circular economy. The students also have multidisciplinary teams where they develop their thinking by preparing new material solutions and eco-designs for these applications.
