The supply of energy to isolated areas is achieved through the targeted design of power systems, able to connect and use resources - already or potentially available - without overburdening current ecosystems, thereby enhancing local economies.

Today, correctly evaluating the feasibility of integrated systems is the key to understanding future scenarios for improvement in non-grid connected areas.

The executive course “Thermal and electric power production and use, in isolated rural areas or non-grid connected areas” offers tools, insights and perspectives, that will enable participants to understand and define open-minded development policies.

- Monday:

Technologies for thermal and electric power production                  

Challenges and barriers to small-scale renewable energy development

- Tuesday:

Bioenergy supply chains, storage, thermal and electric power use and smart grid                   

Energy crops and agronomic assessment

- Wednesday:

Visit to EXPO Milano 2015

- Thursday:

Photovoltaic and wind systems, integrated with CHP biomass unit                     

Economic, social & environmental impacts

- Friday:

Model simulation, business planning for integrated systems
