Smart Energy & Mobility

Module 5: Smart Energy & Mobility

Smart Cities use only a fraction of energy and this comes mostly from regenerative sources. Multi-modal mobility, intelligent and emission-free traffic systems are additional contributions to saving energy and to pollution reduction. This is locally improving the quality of life: better health conditions, less noise, less danger, more usable urban space and easier mobility. Globally it is the only way to match the UN climate goals by drastically reducing the emission of greenhouse gases.

 

Learning Unit 5.1 Smart Energy Generation

A considerably higher amount of clean energy is quickly required in order to achieve UN Climate Goals and to provide people in structurally weak regions with electric power.
Students will have the ability to:
• Understand and assess key components of (smart) energy systems
• Understand current and future interactions and interdependencies between key sectors and systems in urban environments, e.g. between power supply and mobility
• Judge scientific and non-scientific articles on (smart) urban energy systems
• Assess integrated (smart) energy systems on local or country-wide level based on a set of defined criteria

Learning Unit 5.2 Smart Grid Solutions

The second column of the energy revolution is to reduce consumption by installing Smart Grid solutions in line with dedicated equipment on the consumer side – in buildings only using a fraction of energy through intelligent concepts and better construction (third column)
Students
• will learn the basics of energy management
• possess in-depth knowledge of the energy industry and energy engineering
• possess knowledge of the national and international energy markets and their control and steerage strategies
• will learn the basics of transmission grid techniques in the national and international network
• will learn to judge advantages and risks of complex interchanges
• will learn to assess the development of all forms of energy usage and their connections in the near and more distant future using models and scientific prognoses
• will learn to present economic and legal aspects of smart grid strategies
• will learn to describe and evaluate corporate and business forms in the energy market, with emphasis on energy management

Learning Unit 5.3 Smart Mobility Strategies & Management

Increasing motorized individual traffic is stressing life in urban agglomerations all over the world, i.e. congestions, pollution, use of valuable space, exploding public costs, etc. Specifically developed and implemented mobility concepts are based on two major columns: 1. Change of mindset regarding mobility habits; 2. New technological means (i.e. electromobility, automated mover systems, etc)
Students
• will learn the main elements of smart mobility which are:
• Sharing models (car sharing and bike sharing), e.g. free floating sharing models
• Digitalisation of mobility
• Modern empowering of mobility (electricity and hydrogen)
• Intermodality and connection of traffic elements
• Development of autonomous driving
• will learn the basic key elements of traffic which are:
• the main traffic systems which can be used in small towns and big cities. The focus will be on modern traffic
elements such as electric vehicles, autonomous driving etc.
• the main areas of design of traffic engineering and road construction
• small and large-scale use of rail-bound traffic
• economic and legal aspects of transportation within complex infrastructures
• forms of organisation in transportation
• will learn the new forms of mobility concepts which give to the complex problems of traffic systems
• are able to assess the development of transportation in the near and more distant future using models and scientific prognoses

Learning Unit 5.4 Smart Operations & Maintenance

Students will have the ability to:
Public Transport (not updated)
• be introduced into the basics of public transport planning
• know essential tools to plan, build and maintain rail based urban infrastructure
• analyze and valuate public transport operation and maintenance considering minimal capital investment and operational constraints
Roads (not updated)
• be introduced in requirements for operation and maintenance of roads
• know essential operation and maintenance procedures and techniques with regard to roads
• analyze and valuate road operation and maintenance considering minimal capital investment and operational constraints
Airports
• be introduced in fundamental design aspects, requirements for operation and maintenance of airports
• know basic design criteria and essential operation procedures based on international standards and regulations
• analyze and valuate rehabilitation demand and measures considering minimal capital investment and operational constraints
