Courses and Pathways in Technology, Design and Engineering

The course Innovative, Sustainable and Clean Energy, developed by the UNESCO Chair in Innovative, Sustainable and Clean Energy Research and Education in the framework of the UNITWIN-UNESCO program, aims to provide an overview of the different green technologies for clean and innovative energy production, following the recent International policies. After providing an overview of the different energy and environmental policies, which represent a key-point from the strategic standpoint, different renewable energy solutions (wind, solar, hydro, bioenergies) are presented and investigated, focusing for each solution on practical applications, theoretical and experimental R&D activities, on-going projects and impact in different Countries and scenarios. This course will be followed by a Second Pack of lessons more focused on energy management technologies (storage, e-fuels, energy vectors) and sustainable transports
