KD7068 Renewable Energy Technologies for Electricity Supply
Academic Year 2021-2022
Essay and Oral Presentation
In order to meet worldwide targets on the reduction of carbon emissions, the proportion of
energy demand met from renewable energy must continue to increase rapidly. This requires
development of the renewable energy market and the integration of renewable technologies
into the energy infrastructure in a wide range of countries. In turn, these developments
require appropriate technical advances, policy measures and attention to economic, social
and environmental impacts relevant to the individual countries. The assignment addresses
the ways in which these challenges could be met.
For a country of your choice, select a suitable renewable energy technology for the
generation of electricity. Justify your choice in terms of technical characteristics, resource
availability, suitability for integration into the energy supply structure, economic factors and
environmental impact, with specific reference to the chosen country. Review the current
policies for development of renewable technologies in the country, particularly for the
selected technology, discuss the suitability of those policies and suggest possible
Your written assignment should address the topic described above, taking into
account and providing a critical study of published material on the subject and
related issues, together with your opinions and conclusions.
You will be expected to develop the theme further than the coverage in the lecture
Be careful to ensure you have a good balance between the technical and nontechnical factors relating to the implementation of your chosen technologies.
Description of the technical characteristics of the technologies should be related to
the location in which implementation is proposed, not simply a discussion of basic
You will make an oral presentation summarising your written report.
The written assignment should be about 3,000 words in length (not including figures,
tables and references)
References should be cited in full (Authors, Title of Article, Journal Title or
Conference Title or Book Title, Editors if applicable, Publisher for books or
conference proceedings, Year, Page Numbers).
Any material (text or figures) taken from another source should be acknowledged by
a reference (see note below on academic conduct).
The written report must be submitted electronically via the KD7068 module site on
the eLP on or before 23:59 on Friday 17th December 2021.
The oral presentation will be around 10 minutes in length, with up to 5 minutes for
questions and discussions. The presentations will be held during the KD7068 lecture
periods in the week commencing 1th November. Students will be required to prepare
their presentations and submit them by 16:00 on the day before their presentation to
allow uploading to the server and hence ensure a smooth transition between

will be divided as follows: Report 80%, Oral Presentation 20%
The assignment addresses the following learning outcomes from the module descriptor.
The student will be able to:
Explain the operating characteristics of a range of new and renewable electricity generation
Interpret resource assessment information in terms of system operation
Evaluate and compare the relative merits of the use of these technologies in a variety of
electricity supply scenarios, including technical, economic and environmental considerations.
The assignment will be marked on the following basis:
Written Report (total of 80 marks)
