Programma dettagliato e risultati di apprendimento attesi

 

Il corso di Management delle imprese energetiche e delle fonti rinnovabili ha l’obiettivo di fornire agli studenti le conoscenze e gli strumenti necessari per interpretare, analizzare e valutare le scelte strategiche in ambito ambientale ed energetico degli operatori economici. Partendo da un quadro d’assieme a livello globale delle fonti e degli impieghi energetici e del ruolo che la variabile energetica ha nel più articolato quadro delle scelte di sostenibilità dell’impresa, il corso affronta poi con dettaglio le dinamiche di funzionamento dei mercati e delle filiere “tradizionali” (generazione elettrica da idrocarburi, oil & gas), dei mercati e delle filiere delle rinnovabili e dell’efficienza energetica, e l’emergere dei paradigmi di energy communities, smart city e smart grid. Particolare attenzione si presterà al ruolo dell’innovazione e dello sviluppo tecnologico e del quadro normativo.

 

 

The course “Management of Energy & Sustainability” aims at providing skills and tools needed for analyzing, understanding and assessing strategic decisions about energy and sustainability in global firms. The course will start by creating a global framework of the energy sources and uses and of the strategic role of energy & sustainability for firms. Then, it will focus on the understanding of market and industry dynamics related to “traditional” sources (electricity from hydrocarbons and oil&gas), as well as renewable sources. Energy efficiency and the emerging paradigms of energy communities, smart cities and smart grids will be further investigated. The role of technological innovation and of the regulatory framework in the above mentioned industries will be assessed providing students with a comprehensive view of the phenomena.

 

 

Objectives

The course aims at providing skills and tools needed for analyzing, understanding and assessing strategic decisions about energy and sustainability in global firms. It starts from the basic concepts (energy sources and uses, strategic role of energy & sustainability for firms) and then focuses on understanding of market and industry dynamics related to “traditional” as well as renewable sources, energy efficiency, energy communities, smart cities and smart grids. The role of technological innovation and of the regulatory framework will be assessed providing students with a comprehensive view of the phenomena.

 

Topics

 

1. Basics of energy & sustainability. Energy sources and uses at global level, Top Countries in production and usage of energy, The concept of Sustainability as better use of resources, Diffusion of the concept of Sustainability in global firms.

2. Regulatory Framework. Incentive schemes, obligations, and certifications related with the production (e.g., for renewable sources) and the consumption (e.g., for energy efficiency or environmental certifications) of energy. The evolution of the regulatory framework in Europe and its impact on industry dynamics.

3. Market and industry dynamics in traditional energy industries. Global Market dynamics, Technologies & Business Models (Revenues, Margins, Organization) in the production of electricity from hydrocarbons and in the oil&gas industry. Analysis of top players at global and European level.

4. The electricity sector. Industry organization. Power generation and the wholesale market. Generation technology perspectives: investment and production costs. Networks and Retail.

5. Market and industry dynamics in renewable energy industries. Global Market dynamics, Technologies & Business Models (Revenues, Margins, Organization) in renewables (PV, Wind, Biomasses, Hydro, CSP, Thermal Solar, CHP,…). Analysis of top players at global and European level.

6. Market and industry dynamics in energy efficiency. Global Market dynamics, Technologies & Business Models (Revenues, Margins, Organization) in energy efficiency for buildings and for industrial processes. Analysis of top players at global and European level.

7. Strategy&Sustainability. The adoption of sustainable technologies, products and processes in global firms. Pros and cons of sustainability at a firm level. Impacts of sustainability on firm’s performance.

8. Energy Communities, Smart Cities and Smart Grids. Integrating new technologies for producing, using and storing energy in local (energy communities) environments as well as in cities (smart cities). The role of the infrastructure (smart grid) in the development of energy communities and smart cities. Business cases and examples of energy communities, smart cities and smart grids.

 

 

 

 


Note Sulla Modalità di valutazione

The course is organized through a purposively designed mix of lectures and practical cases, exercises and discussions. The assessment is made through an oral exam. Students are requested to develop an in-course project, by focusing on one of the topics of the course.
