Prerequisites for registration:
Assesment methods:
During the semester there will be 1 written exam for 10 points and 1 semester project for 40 points. For the exam, the student gets 60 points. The credit is not awarded to a student who earns less than 5 points in the semestral written exam.
Learning outcomes of the course unit:
Graduates of the subject will be able to explain independently the principles of sustainable development, impacts of the power industry on environmental components and measures to reduce adverse impacts on the environment and population health. The graduates of the subject will be familiar with the environmental impacts of all technologies used in power engineering, in particular conventional fossil and nuclear energy sources and renewable energy sources (solar and hydro, wind and sea energy, geothermal energy, biomass energy). They also know the effects of electricity transmission and accumulation to explain the importance of energy efficiency improvement measures.
Course contents:
The impact of energy on the environment, basic concepts and problems of current power sector, especially the prevention of climate change. Legislative conditions in the energy sector, environmental impact assessment. Energy intensity indicators of technologies. Tools for rationalizing energy consumption. Ecological measures in thermal and nuclear power plants. Impacts of heat, water and nuclear power plants on the environment. Nuclear Safety, Processing and Storage of Spent Nuclear Fuel. Accumulation of energy. Renewable energy sources and their impact on the environment.
