The specialisation semester ‘Sustainable Energy & ICT’ gives you the answers! We focus on energy audits, energy measurements and internet of things. Renewable energy production (electrical and thermal) gives us the opportunity to reduce the energy we buy from the grid. Smart devices and equipment combined with an energy traffic controller maximize the self-consumption of the generated energy. The data of the sensors and equipment must be secured and new devices use Artificial Intelligence or Machine Learning to maximize the energy savings.
Overproduction can be stored in storage systems to be used when we have less production, or we sell the energy to others using blockchain.
The modules in the specialisation ‘Sustainable energy & ICT’ are:
- Energy Audit & Dashboarding (electrical & thermal)(6 ECTS)
- Big Data & Internet of Things (6 ECTS)
- Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning (3 ECTS)
- Smart Grids, Renewables & Storage (electrical & thermal) (6 ECTS)
- Energy Services & Legislations (3 ECTS)
- Blockchain & Security (6 ECTS)
Teaching will be based on lectures (including guest lectures given by specialists from industry), laboratory exercises and projects, supervised working independently and field visits given through all the subjects. In order to reinforce the effective learning, active teaching and self-directed learning methodologies are selected.
The areas of HOWEST Energy & ICT lab involved in the specialisation semester are focuses on the following research activities:
- Energy management systems and energy audits
- Smart energy solutions
- Industrial security
- Internet of things and big data analytics
- Artificial intelligence and machine learning
- Thermal energy storage
- Secure transactions in the energy value chain (blockchain / cyber crime)
