Fellowship Description

Research program title

Study of novel solar energy applications to buildings and infrastructure

Reference number

1017

Supervisor

Program description

Modelling, simulation and experimental studies of key design and operation concepts with PV/T and STPV systems for infrastructure and building applications to make them zero energy and also able to operate standalone (resilient infrastructure) in emergency situations – to provide their own power and heat and also generate electricity to charge several electric and plugin hybrid cars.
Design and performance of tests in an environmental chamber with a solar simulator.
Design of field tests of prototypes in outdoor conditions and eventually full scale demonstrations.

Academic qualifications required

  • PhD in building or mechanical engineering with experience in building thermal and solar systems modeling, simulation, design, experimental studies; application of solar system concepts to infrastructure;
  • Bilingualism an asset.
