Obiettivi dell'insegnamento

The course will focus on the relations between the physical-chemical properties of materials involved in alternative energy systems and their macroscopic behaviour. In particular, electrochemical devices for the storage and electricity generation with low environmental impacts will be illustrated. Materials and devices for harnessing solar energy and for clean fuels production will be also described. 


Risultati di apprendimento attesi

When the student has successfully passed the exam, he/she has a good knowledge of and is able to discuss the following topics (DdD1):

- alternative systems of energy generation and storage (i.e. fuel cells, rechargeable batteries and capacitors);

- common and innovative materials for energy applications;

- fundamentals properties of the main classes of materials involved in energy systems;

- relations existing between microscopic physical-chemical features of a material and its macroscopic properties and functions;

- dielectric materials for energy harvesting;

- renewable and sustainable ways to produce energy.

A consistent part of the course will be devoted to solve numerical and practical problems related to materials properties and devices which they are assembled in; then the student will be able to solve specific problems, and to select the optimal materials for any case (DdD2,3).


Argomenti trattati

The course deals with properties of materials for energy; it will concern different technologies for alternative energy production, for transportation and storage, as well as related kinetic and thermodynamic aspects. In detail, the following topics will be considered:

- materials for electrochemical devices for energy production and storage;

- hydrogen economy: production, storage and use;

- alternative electrochemical energy generators: low- and high-temperature fuel cells;

- materials for storage devices: rechargeable batteries and capacacitors;

- photovoltaic devices: inorganic semiconductors and photo-electrochemistry;

- piezoelectricity and ferroelectricity: application in energy harvesting.


Obiettivi di sviluppo sostenibile - SDGs
Questo insegnamento contribuisce al raggiungimento dei seguenti Obiettivi di Sviluppo Sostenibile dell'Agenda ONU 2030:
  • SDG7 - AFFORDABLE AND CLEAN ENERGY
  • SDG11 - SUSTAINABLE CITIES AND COMMUNITIES

SDG7: electrochemical devices for energy production and storage, photoelectrochemical cells for green hydrogen production, alternative electrochemical energy generators, photovoltaic devices and related semiconductors.

SDG11: materials for storage devices, rechargeable batteries and capacacitors, energy harvesting by exploiting piezoelectric devices. 


Prerequisiti

It is required only a basic knowledge of chemistry and physics, in particular in terms of simple stoichiometric calculations, international system of units and physical phenomena.


Modalità di valutazione

Written exam (2 h) with questions about theory and numerical exercises. It will consist of two parts: the first will be carried out by using MS Forms with multiple choice questions and open questions related to theoretical parts, the second one will consist in numerical exercises; students will be allowed to consult a formulary provided by the teacher.
