The learning outcome of the course is gaining an insight in the application of renewable energy technologies for the development of rural regions in less developed or emergent economies. Students should know about methodologies for the assessment of the actual energy need and its future change in regions up to now not connected to central supply networks. They know about technical and non-technical criteria and methods to rank different technical options and are able to perform the respective selection.
The course content will on the one hand deal with the assessment of the basic energy needs and their fulfilment by analysing and discussing the theoretical studies and reports on respective projects. On the other hand, an extended case study should be performed by the students.
