2nd Workshop on Electrical Energy Markets and Engineering Education
Special MECO workshop for the dissemination of the Erasmus+ CBHE project:
Electrical Energy Markets and Engineering Education
June 10-14, 2019, Budva, Montenegro
is a capacity building proejct designed to facilitate electrical engineering curricula to be competitive through teaching and training in smart gird technologies and electricity markets. Expected outputs include new BSc courses, a MSc programme, training of academic and technical staff, new ICT pedagogical tools, such as e-learning platforms and gamified content combined with blended learning, an internship programme for the most motivated of the ELEMEND students, new laboratories accessible to all partners, an ELEMEND network around the core group of the project’s industrial partners. The student projects carried out in ELEMEND labs in the third project year will focus on real‐life problems while the e‐learning courses, gamified applications, virtual labs, new courses and Master’s programme are expected to engage new students and relevant target groups after the lifetime of the project as well as enhance public’s awareness.
Facilitated by the developments in renewable energy sources RES and distributed generation as well as ICT technologies allowing bi-directional information flow and intelligent control, smart grid and microgrid technologies are recognized as a world changing trend that will permeate everyday life and reshape all energy related industry and businesses. These developments have expedited the deregulation of existing electricity markets and facilitated the emergence of new ones. The new paradigms of electricity grids and markets require that the staff operating in the new techological and economical envirroment as well as electricity end users are properly educated and trained.
This workshop on Electrical Energy Markets and Engineering Education is devoted to discussing the latest developments in engineering education in view of the technological, economic and institutional developments. In a rapidly changing world, higher education must strive to pass the torch of knowledge to the next generation preparing the future scientists and engineers that will address modern life issues to the benefit of the society on the one hand and design the future on the other. Courses and curricula must encompass current and future trends on the solid ground of existing knowledge.
Topics of the workshop may include recent developments in electricity markets in the EU and the rest of the world, RES microgrids, ICT for smart grids, end user behavior modification, engineering curricula, informal education on related topics.
