Competences

At the end of the class, students will be able to: Explain the notion of energy vectors and conversion between vectors. For each technology: explain the technology working principle and its efficiency range describe the plant, network or device design (components, architecture, fluxes in/out, scale) identify the necessary resources and siting constraints (eg a connection to a water network or other infrastructures) stimate the size, scalability and lifetime of projects give orders of magnitudes for technology costs in terms of CAPEX and OPEX explain the global direction of evolution of each technology and identify reliable sources of information on technological evolutions in order to anticipate the potential impacts of these evolutions (with regards for example to the life cycles, business models, supply chains, etc, which are treated in other courses) identify externalities Explain how energy can be transported at various scales, describe constraints from and on the electrical grid and the evolutions thereof. Compare technologies or portfolios of technologies: describe the differences between the various technologies in terms of orders of magnitude of energy production, efficiencies and costs Understand the technical criteria that will be used to choose a production/transport/storage technology to fulfil an energy need at a specific site or region. Other courses will detail the contexts and methods to make these choices.
