Syllabus of lectures:

The course is divided into following consecutive sections:

- general RES introduction

- hydropower

- wind energy

- solar and geothermal energy

- biomass in general

- biomass as a fuel

- combustion of biomass

- gasification of biomass

- liquid fuels from biomass (pyrolysis, FAME, ethanol)

- biogas

Syllabus of tutorials:

Individual projects and presentations

Study Objective:

The goal is to get knowledge of renewable energy sources application possibilities, to understand biomass as a fuel and to get knowledge about possible ways of biomass energy conversion technologies.

Study materials:

No general literature for the course available. Materials will be provided during the course.
