PRGR633 Renewable Energy Systems and Energy Efficiency in Buildings

[2 cr.]

The module serves as the main process for a establishing a net zero energy building/architecture by means of enabling a building to generate the electrical energy it needs from its own resources. The module thus delves into the two main building’s self-energy sources; wind and solar PV. It covers the implementations of micro or mid-scale wind turbines and solar PV systems for the generation of electrical energy. The module also covers storage and grid connection mechanisms as well. Lighting efficiency and electrical installation issues.
