PERIODO: GIUGNO 2018 ICT are recognised as being key players towards sustainability tasks particularly when dealing with energy: pervasive sensors and actuators can efficiently control the energy chain (Smart Thermal/Electricity Grid). On the other side, advances on 3D modelling, visualisation and interaction technologies enable user profiling and real-time feedback to promote energy efficient behaviours. However, despite the undeniable and intrinsic potentialities of the ICT, it is difficult to determine whether the benefit of smart solutions will materialise under real-word conditions particularly when dealing with smart solutions for energy saving affecting users behaviour. The aim of the course is to present a number of evaluation methodologies to support decision processes towards energy transition at urban district level. The Ph.D course provides: - A theoretical framework related to urban sustainability focusing on the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, saving energy, optimising processes with regard to sustainability criteria; - Energy policies to define an energy masterplan considering energy actions on single buildings; - Assessment methodologies comprising cost/benefits analysis (CBA), discounted cash flow analysis (DCF) and multicriteria decision analysis (MCDA); - An interactive Workshop. The aim of the workshop is to present and apply web-based visual platforms that have been developed during a number of recent European projects. The objective of the tools is to design future energy scenarios, identify costs and revenues of the scenarios hypotheses and to perform MCDA in order to manage complex energy decision processes at district scale.

Module 1: Definition of energy transition, smart city and sustainability at urban/district level (3 hours). Module 2: Identification of the energy district policies and smart grid (3 hours). This module focus on energy fundamental aspects in districts: buildings energy consumption, heating and electric generation (renewable, cogeneration), energy grids, energy flows. Module 3: Assessment methodologies (3 hours). Different assessment methodologies are presented which able to structure complex decision processes, including ACB, DCF and MCDA. Module 4: ICT Workshop (6 hours) The workshop will be structure into steps: - presentation of a number of European case studies (MILESECURE-2050; POCACITO; DIMMER; KIC InnoEnergy/ EIT ICT Lab (Smart Energy Systems); EEB – Energy efficient buildings) and of ICT web-based platforms developed; - application of the ICT web-platforms to a case study at district level; - presentation of main results and discussion. Date: 8th , 11th , 15th , 18th June from 9 to 12 Location: Sala Vigliano

Gli studenti e le studentesse con disabilità o con Disturbi Specifici di Apprendimento (DSA), oltre alla segnalazione tramite procedura informatizzata, sono invitati a comunicare anche direttamente al/la docente titolare dell'insegnamento, con un preavviso non inferiore ad una settimana dall'avvio della sessione d'esame, gli strumenti compensativi concordati con l'Unità Special Needs, al fine di permettere al/la docente la declinazione più idonea in riferimento alla specifica tipologia di esame.
In addition to the message sent by the online system, students with disabilities or Specific Learning Disorders (SLD) are invited to directly inform the professor in charge of the course about the special arrangements for the exam that have been agreed with the Special Needs Unit. The professor has to be informed at least one week before the beginning of the examination session in order to provide students with the most suitable arrangements for each specific type of exam.
