Sustainable Energy Technology
Sustainable energy and our society Global warming Depletion of fossil fuels Very large time scales We have to take our responsibility for our future now!
Simulation with climate model
Fossil fuel reserves Proven reserves Coal:250 year Oil: 50 year Natural gas: 60 year Possible reserves: 500 year (based on the present consumption )
The SD vision scenario from the IEA
Kyoto protocol 1997: Industrialised countries Reduction of green house gases with 5% (1990) Global warming Rise of the sea level Fossil fuels Sustainable energy
The Dutch targets for the year 2020 –2% reduction in energy consumption per year –30 % reduction of CO 2 emission –20 % sustainable energy Policy –Stimulate technological developments –Give subsidies for: Energy savings Green investments –Forcing: Force the electricity suppliers to deliver green electricity Sustainable energy in the Netherlands
Inzet wind ca wind turbines in the Netherlands (1% of total) Wind energy about 3x more expensive as conventional supply
Solar energy Incoming radiation is about 50 times our energy demand. Direct energy saving Relatively expensive
Storage of solar energy Biomass! Solar
Organic material from plant and trees created by photosynthesis Biomass Closed cycle Biomass for energy is CO 2 neutral
TU Eindhoven officially started in June 2005 with an approved master program. In April 2006 upgraded to a national master program (TUE/TUDelft/UT) Combination between technical (75%) and social sciences (25%), contrary to Utrecht (25 % technical, 75% social) Comparable programs in Oldenburg, Stockholm, Leeds en Reading Master Sustainable Energy Technology
program objectives Domain-specific requirements Broad: Have disciplinary theoretical and technical knowledge (broad) able to evaluate conventional and sustainable energy systems in integrated electrical system context able to evaluate sustainable energy systems in the societal context able to design energy systems able to analyze and understand the socio- technical nature of system innovations Deep : expert in at least one sub-area
The core courses Energy from biomass Solar energy Wind energy Electrical power engineering and system integration Hydrogen technology System innovation and stategic nich management 24 EC
introductory course: Technology for sustainable development courses to reach adequate basic levels in mathematics, physics, chemistry and design engineering: Transport phenomena Energy systems Chemical reactor engineering Design methodology courses to reach adequate basic levels in social sciences: Energy and economy Technology for sustainable development
system integration projects (6+9 EC): ‘System integration projects 1 and 2’ (Can be replaced by an Internship) elective courses (15 EC): Courses in preparation of the graduation project graduation project (45 EC): In one of the following topics: Solar Energy, Wind energy, Biomass, Hydrogen, Intelligent electricity networks and Transition policy
System integration projects: Formulated in cooperation with ECN TNO EDON ENECO Energie Delfland ENW EnergieNed EPON GASTEC KEMA Shell Stork First integration project: Project-led education (as in the CTW bachelor education). Second integration project: individual hands-on experience in the design, analysis or application of an energy system or in the exploration of new research questions. problem oriented in the form of a research assignment. Or an internship: ‘Energy related’, at one of these companies, or at Essent, Nuon, BTG, etc.
