1950 - 2050: A century of Energy REvolution - understanding the transition of energy systems

TU Berlin Summer & Winter University
Campus Full time July 2017 Germany Berlin

Students interested in the technical and economical aspects of energy and resources. [+]

Best Courses in Energy in Germany 2017. Summer University block 3: July 24th - August 17th, 2017 Course price: 1.850 Euros 18 hours of class sessions per week, 5 ECTS credit points Target group Students interested in the technical and economical aspects of energy and resources. Learning Goal/Output Understanding energy transitions towards decarbonization on a local and global scale Understanding the political decision-making processes Quantitative methods for assessment of policy decisions Working in a transdisciplinary environment Course Components The course will include the following components: - Interactive classroom-based lectures and discussions - Group work projects and presentations - Quantitative modeling sessions in a computer lab using GAMS (General Algebraic Modeling System) - Guest lectures e.g. from academia, NGOs, think tanks and the political sector - Excursions to conventional (including coal mining), and renewable energy sites Short Description There is no dispute that an average global temperature rise of more than 2°C above pre-industrial levels would lead to severe environmental and economic costs for society. A major challenge in tackling global warming is the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, especially in the electricity sector. The “Energiewende” in Germany proves that a decarbonization of the electricity sector, in combination with a shut-down of all nuclear capacities is (technically) manageable and economically viable. As a result, learning-effects and reduced investment costs enable a market-driven worldwide roll-out of new technologies. In 2014, 144 countries already set renewable targets. As a consequence, the number of global renewable generation installations in 2014, outnumbered the combined number... [-]

Green Liver Systems - Eco Friendly Water Purification

TU Berlin Summer & Winter University
Campus Full time 4 weeks June 2017 Germany Berlin

The course is for all students interested in ecotoxicology and environmental engineering, with a focus on the topics of water and water purification, using eco-friendly methods. [+]

Summer University block 1: June 12th - July 6th, 2017 Course price: 1.850 Euros 18 hours of class sessions per week, 5 ECTS credit points Topic Water pollution, eutrophication, water purification, biotransformation, aquatic macrophytes, risk assessment. Target group The course is for all students interested in ecotoxicology and environmental engineering, with a focus on the topics of water and water purification, using eco-friendly methods. Learning Goal/Output Having taken this course, students will have: Developed fundamental knowledge on water pollution, contaminants and chemical analysis Developed ideas for suitable eco-friendly systems to combat these water pollutants Gained hands-on experience on building a Green Liver System Enhanced their creative thinking and learning in a group Course Components The course will include the following components: Classroom-based lectures Group work sub-projects Excursion to the Piano Lake Practical workshop Short Description The students will gain insight into the most important environmental contaminants, including micro-pollutants and natural toxins. They will learn how to use ecosystem services provided by aquatic macrophytes to clean up polluted water for different purposes (drinking water, spray irrigation water etc.) Analytical methods such as LC-MSMS (mass-spectrometry) will be shown and used as well. The students will have a hands-on experience building a model Green Liver System and will perform some basic experiments on water purification with this self-made model. The excursion to Piano lake will show the students a urban water body and a small Green Liver-like system installed in this lake. Commercial ideas will be developed and presented on how to use...
