1) Division of Energy

Section of Production, Transport and Distribution of Energy

Director: Prof. A. Tourlidakis

Energy production from fossil fuels as well as alternative sources, transportation and distribution of energy and its carriers are the main subjects taught and studied in the division. The division has also an interest in the study and development of advanced materials for energy applications. Main research activities in the division include computational as well as experimental studies using state-of-the-art numerical and diagnostic methods in combustion phenomena and turbomachinery. Other efforts deal with the development of rational technologies for energy transportation and distribution, improvements in efficiency of energy systems and production and utilization of energy from renewable energy resources such as hydro-electric, biomass, wind and solar.

Section of Environmental Engineering and Energy Use

Director: Assoc. Prof. G. Marnellos

Description The mission of the Environment and Energy Use division is twofold: a) the study of environmental issues, particularly those concerned with energy use with a view to develop sustainable technologies, and b) the study of alternative and/or renewable energy resources. The research activities are focused on environmental problems and the development of antipollution technologies in industrial, commercial or domestic sectors. Further research is carried out into the use of alternative resources of energy such as hydrogen, solar, geothermal, etc.
