AIMS AND CONTENT

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

Aims

The module aims at providing to the students advanced knowledge about the following topics:

- Thermal analysis of buildings

- Techno-economic valuation of energy efficiency interventions in existing buildings

- Development of specific calculation models

 

Learning outcomes

On the successful completion of the module, the students will be able to:

- To solve problems of heat exchange in different typologies of buildings

- To estimate the thermal loads in different typologies of buildings

- To propose energy efficiency interventions in existing buildings

- To develop techno-economic analysis of energy efficiency interventions

- To implement techno-economic spreadsheets based calculations models

Teaching methods

Frontal lectures in classroom; Practical sessions in classroom; Computed based case studies in classroom developed in small groups

EXAMS

Exam description

The final examination will be based on an oral colloquium, where questions based on theoretical and applicative issues will be asked.

Assessment methods

During the colloquium, the following parameters will be evaluated:

- Quality of the oral exposition

- Correctness of the language

- Capacity to analyze critically the proposed questions
