Course on Concentrating Solar Power (CSP)

Room 4N

A mini-course (24 hours) on Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) will start on June 3 at 10:00 am in room 4N, within the framework of the course on Technology of renewable energy sources (TRES), for the MSc Degree in Energy and nuclear engineering.
The course will be held by prof. John Downing Pye, from the Australian National University (ANU) in Canberra, who will have a visiting professor position in our Politecnico starting June 1.

John is currently a senior lecturer in the Solar Thermal Group of the Research School of Engineering, College of Engineering and Computer Science, at ANU, where he was employed since 2006. He got a Bachelor in Mechanical Engineering and a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics, both from the University of Melbourne, and a PhD from the University of New South Wales. Prof. Pye has always worked on CSP, a field in which he has been the author or co-author of many publications in international journals and conference proceedings, as well as of three patents, and where he is currently tutoring several PhD students.

All interested people not enrolled in the TRES course are kindly asked to contact mattia.cagnoli@polito.it in advance, in order to guarantee the satisfaction of room occupation limitations.
