Power Mix and Economics for Energy Transition
The key objective of this masterclass is to share fundamental insights on energy generation technologies alongside market trends and needs. How do we generate energy? What is the role of energy engineers in the energy sector? Why is our economy tied to energy? What are the current energy trends and what is their impact on households and the economy for the coming winter and beyond? As part of his Masterclass, Professor Morsili will also demonstrate how electricity is generated and supplied to French and European households to satisfy their daily needs at the lowest carbon emissions. He will end with an online assessment of our individual digital environment footprint in kg CO2-eq.
