The aim of the minor is to equip bachelor engineering students with selected knowledge and skills concerning energy conversion and storage systems and component technologies that are based on renewable resources, which are as such mostly fluctuating and not-well predictable. Electricity is not easily and cost-effectively stored, so a mismatch –both in time and geographically- between demand and supply of power is a real societal challenge. Also, storage of electricity needs to be accomplished at widely varying time scales to cope with fast weather fluctuations, day-night rhythm, occurrence of larger weather systems’ effects and seasonal variation of supply.
